Entries found for search: flux

flux : Lines of force surrounding a magnet. In measuring the strength of a magnetic field at a particular location, the number of lines of force per unit area in a plane perpendicular to the direction of the lines. The standard reference unit in magnetic tape for recording is the nanoweber per meter, and is called flux density.

fluxivity : The numerical measure of maximum flux density a specific type of recording tape can hold. Reference fluxivity is a standardized amount of flux, specified in nanowebers per meter, which is laboratory-recorded on a test tape at various frequencies. Such reference tapes are used to calibrate tape recorder 0dBVU playback levels.
