Oersted



[ur-sted] /ˈɜr stɛd/

noun, Electricity.
1.
the centimeter-gram-second unit of magnetic intensity, equal to the magnetic pole of unit strength when undergoing a force of one dyne in a vacuum.
Abbreviation: Oe.
2.
(formerly) the unit of magnetic reluctance equal to the reluctance of a centimeter cube of vacuum between parallel surfaces.
Abbreviation: Oe.

/ˈɜːstɛd/
noun
1.
the cgs unit of magnetic field strength; the field strength that would cause a unit magnetic pole to experience a force of 1 dyne in a free space. It is equivalent to 79.58 amperes per metre Oe

oersted oer·sted (ûr’stěd’)
n.
The centimeter-gram-second electromagnetic unit of magnetic intensity, equal to the magnetic intensity one centimeter from a unit magnetic pole.
oersted
(ûr’stěd’)
The unit of magnetic field strength in the centimeter-gram-second system. A unit magnetic monopole in a magnetic field with a strength of one oersted would be subjected to a force of one dyne. It is equal to 79.577 amperes per meter.
Oersted, Hans Christian 1777-1851.
Danish physicist who is credited as the founder of the science of electromagnetism. Oersted established the connection between electric current and magnetic force when he accidentally discovered that a compass’s magnetic needle is deflected at right angles when placed next to a conductor carrying an electric current. The oersted unit of magnetic field strength is named after him.
