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 unit of magnetic flux in the International System of Units (SI). The unit is derived (through Faraday's law of induction) from the relationship 1 Wb = 1 V⋅s (volt-second). A magnetic flux density of 1 Wb/m2 (one weber per square metre) is one tesla.
