hey guyzz...

can you clear my concept regarding flux???

What is flux??what is the difference between electric flux and magnetic flux??
what is flux density??

eagerly waiting for your replies.... Posted in: #Coffee Room

FlUX - Flux is the presence of a force field in a specified physical medium, or the flow of energy through a surface.
Flux is nothing but no. of lines in a plane that contains or intersects electric charge poles or magnetic poles.

Flux lines are intangible; they cannot be seen. But they can be observed indirectly, and they produce demonstrable effects

ELECTRIC FLUX - It is generally linked with any surface is defined as the total number of electric field lines that pass through that surface.

The total electric flux through a surface in an electric field may be the surface integarl of the electric field over that surface.

Electric flux is a scalar quantity.

MAGNETIC FLUX - The magnetic lines of force passing normally through a surface is defined as magnetic flux.

The number of magnetic lines of force passing normally through a unit area of asubstance is defined as the magnetic flux density.

An electric field changing in time gives rise to a displacement current. A magnetic field changing in time gives rise to an electromotive force.

By definition, we have 鈫 J d i s p l a c e m e n t = 鈭 鈫 D 鈭 t = 蔚 鈭 鈫 E 鈭 t J鈫抎isplacement=鈭侱鈫掆垈t=蔚鈭侲鈫掆垈t. So displacement current is a changing electric field. Eelectromotive force is something that you can't define in parallel with displacement current. It is caused by collectively considering the Lorentz force of the magnetic field on all of the charged particles of a material.
