 # Relation Between Gauss And Tesla

The magnetic induction is expressed in Gauss or Tesla. The gauss from Centimeter Gram- Second(CGS) system corresponds to the Tesla of the International System of units(SI). The relation between Gauss and Tesla is useful in solving the problem.

## Gauss and Tesla Formula

The units of the magnetic field or magnetic flux density, Gauss and Tesla relation can be mathematically expressed as-

 Tesla to Gauss formula 1 Tesla = 104 gauss Gauss to Tesla formula 1 gauss = 10-4 Tesla

In order to understand the relation. It is important to know the terms individually.

 Definition Symbol Formula Fundamental unit 1 Gauss One maxwell per square cm G 1G=cm-½.g1/2.s-1 G=cm-½.g1/2.s-1 1 Tesla One weber per meter square T 1T=m-½.kg1/2.s-1 T=m-½.kg1/2.s-1 or T= kg.A-1.s-2

### Conversion of Gauss and Tesla

The relation between Gauss and Tesla should not be expressed as equations. They are correspondences. The key difference is that-

• The gauss is the unit of magnetic flux density in the CGS system which is the family of three-dimensional units systems.
• Which means that Gauss can be solely expressed using centimeter, gram, and second.
• Tesla is used to express magnetic flux density in SI unit, which is a seven-dimensional system.
• Which means that Tesla cannot be expressed with just, meter, kilogram, and second.

It includes the fourth-dimensional electromagnetic unit, that is the unit of electricity.

Below table contains some of the commonly used values of magnetic flux density

 Units Values 1 Tesla in gauss 1tesla = 10,000 gauss 100 gauss to Tesla 100 gauss= 0.01 Tesla

Hope you understood the relation and conversion between Tesla and Gauss.
