# Ampere per meter (A/m, Oe, oersted)

The SI unit of magnetic field strength is the Tesla. The Tesla can be expressed in terms of the more familiar unit of magnetic field strength, the gauss, by dividing by 10,000. The gauss is named after the German physicist Karl Friedrich Gauss. One gauss is equal to 10−4 teslas.

The cgs unit of magnetic field strength is the oersted, named in honor of the Danish physicist Hans Christian Oersted. One oersted is equal to 79.58 amperes per meter (A/m).

The SI unit of current density is the ampere per square meter. The cgs unit of current density is the statampere, which is equal to 1/(4π) oersteds.

#### What is the relation between tesla and oersted?

The tesla is the SI unit of the magnetic field. The oersted is the SI unit of the magnetic field strength. The relation between the two units is that the tesla is equal to the magnetic field strength divided by the magnetic permeability of the vacuum.

##### How do you convert oersted to tesla?

In order to convert oersted to tesla, you need to use the following formula:

T = Oe * 0.0001

where T is the tesla unit and Oe is the oersted unit. What is Oe in magnetic field? Oe is the magnetic field strength required to produce a magnetic flux density of 1 Tesla in a vacuum. The Oe unit is named after the German physicist Wilhelm Eduard Weber (1804-1891). Is oersted unit of magnetic field? Yes, oersted (Oe) is the unit of magnetic field in the International System of Units (SI). The oersted is named after the Danish physicist Hans Christian Oersted (1777-1851), who discovered the relationship between electricity and magnetism. What is the value of 1 ampere? 1 ampere is the value of current that will flow through a conductor when a voltage of 1 volt is applied across it and there is no resistance to the current flow.
