Directions: Fill in the shaded boxes with the Br for the magnet
material, the dimensions of the magnet, and the distance
from the magnet to the sensor element. The dimensions
can be in any units. The resulting field strength at the sensor
element, at a temperature of 25C, is calculated.

Reference : Magnetic Field Unit
Magnetic field strength is defined by vector field which has a direction and a magnitude
(or strength).
The number of magnetic flux lines which go through the unit area perpendicular to
magnetic field is called Flux density B.
The relation between Magnetic strength H and flux density B can be defined by B = H.
in this case is permeability, the unit of magetizability.
In the air, is usually about 1, except special case, and 1 Gauss 1 Oersted.
Usually, magnetic field strength is defined by the unit of OeA/m ( Oersted
Ampere/meter ).
And when it is defined by flux density, the units of G (Gauss) or T (Tesla) are used.
This means that flux density B is a value which includes magnetizability and magnetic flux
H does not include magnetizability.
In many cases, Residual magnetic flux density (Br) and Magnetic coercive force (Hc) are
used to define properties of permanent magnets.
Oe (Oersted) is used to define Magnetic coercive force as it is the strength of magnetic
field to reverse the direction of magnetic pole.

Magnetic Domains
Themicroscopic orderingof electron spins characteristic
offerromagneticmaterials leads to the formation of regions of
alignment called domains.

The main implication of the domains is that there is already a

of magnetization in ferromagnetic materials within individual d
that in the absence of external magnetic fields those domains
oriented. A modest applied magnetic field can cause a larger d
alignment of the magnetic moments with the external field, gi
multiplication of the applied field.
These illustrations of domains are conceptual only and not me
an accurate scale of the size or shape of domains. The micros
evidence about magnetization indicates that the net magnetiz

actually occur more by the growth of the domains parallel to t
field at the expense of other domains rather than the reorient
domains themselves as implied in the sketch.

is intense, but in a bulk sample the material will
usually be unmagnetized because the many
domains will themselves be randomly oriented
with respect to one another. Ferromagnetism
manifests itself in the fact that a small externally

cause the magnetic domains to line up with each
other and the material is said to be magnetized.
The driving magnetic field will then be increased

fraction of the saturation magnetization which is
retained when the driving field is removed is
called theremanenceof the material, and is an
important factor in permanent magnets.
