Solution

## Definition: Tesla can be defined as the unit of magnetic induction. It is denoted by “T”.$1\mathrm{Tesla}$ is equal to the one weber of magnetic induction per square meter of area. The S.I base unit of the tesla is $\mathrm{kilogram}{\mathrm{second}}^{-2}{\mathrm{ampere}}^{-1}$ ($\mathrm{kg}.{\mathrm{s}}^{-2}{\mathrm{A}}^{-1}$). The SI unit of magnetic induction is named in honor of the Serbian-American engineer and inventor Nikola Tesla, upon the Slovenian inventor and electrical engineer France Avcin).Therefore, the intensity of the field is produced by $\mathrm{one}\mathrm{newton}\left(\mathrm{N}\right)$ of $\mathrm{force}\mathrm{per}\mathrm{ampere}\left(\mathrm{A}\right)$ of current per meter of conductor.
