Real nature of “tesla” seen in Pip Elekiban

Symbol: T / Base data: Magnetic flux density. SI derived units.
One weber of magnetic flux density moving perpendicularly through a magnetic field of one tesla, at a speed of one meter per second.

Unit indicating magnetic flux density

The “tesla” unit is used for magnetic flux density, which indicates magnetic field intensity. It is defined as one weber of magnetic flux density per square meter. Its cool-sounding name is a nod to the high achievements of Nikola Tesla, who invented the alternating current (AC) induction motor.
