# Relation Between Gauss And Tesla

Magnetic induction is expressed in Gauss or Tesla. The gauss from the Centimetre 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 unit systems.
• This means that gauss can be solely expressed using centimetre, gram, and second.
• Tesla is used to expressing magnetic flux density in the SI unit, which is a seven-dimensional system.
• This means that tesla cannot be expressed with just, metre, kilogram, and second.

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

Below table contains some 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.
