### Magnetic Flux Density

**(B, Magnetic Field, Magnetic Induction, B Field)**
(vector field describing magnetism in relation to the Lorentz force)

The **Magnetic Flux Density** (Magnetic Field, Magnetic Induction,
**B Field**, or **B**)
is a vector field describing magnetic forces
in a volume.
Its relationship to an electric field (**E**)
is defined by Maxwell's Equations and
is illustrated by the Lorentz Force Law:

F = q(E + v x B)

- F - force on a particle.
- q - electric charge of the particle.
- E - electric field.
- v - velocity of the particle.
- B - Magnetic Flux Density.

The unit is the Tesla (SI) or Gauss (CGS).
