Magnetic Flux

Weber is the SI unit of magnetic flux. The equivalent CGS system unit is Maxwell, and 1 Weber = 10^8 Maxwell.

Weber_(unit) (Wikipedia)

In physics, the weber (/ˈvb-, ˈwɛb.ər/ VAY-, WEH-bər; symbol: Wb) is the SI derived unit of magnetic flux whose units are volt-second. A flux density of one Wb/m2 (one weber per square metre) is one tesla.
