 | David C. Jiles \\ **Introduction to Magnetism and Magnetic Materials**[(Jiles)] | //One of the most fundamental ideas in magnetism is the concept of the magnetic field. When a field is generated in a volume of space it means that there is a change of energy of that volume, and furthermore that there is an energy gradient so that a force is produced which can be detected by the acceleration of an electric charge moving in the field, by the force on a current-carrying conductor, by the torque on a magnetic dipole such as a bar magnet or even by a reorientation of spins of electrons within certain types of atoms.// | //There are a number of ways in which the magnetic field strength H can be defined. In accordance with the ideas developed here we wish to emphasize the connection between the magnetic field H and the generating electric current. We shall therefore define the unit of magnetic field strength, the ampere per meter, in terms of the generating current. The simplest definition is as follows. The ampere per meter is the field strength produced by an infinitely long solenoid containing //n// turns per metre of coil and carrying a current of 1///n// amperes.// | //When a magnetic field H has been generated in a medium by a current, in accordance with Ampere'​s law, the response of the medium is its magnetic induction B, also sometimes called the flux density.// | | David C.
