weber web·er (wěb'ər, vā'bər)
A unit of magnetic flux in the International System of Units equal to the product of one tesla and one square meter.
Weber We·ber (vā'bər), Ernst Heinrich. 1795-1878.
German physiologist and psychologist who studied sensory response and is considered a founder of experimental psychology.
German physiologist who is noted for his study of sensory response, particularly in the ear and the skin. He also demonstrated that the digestive juices are the specific products of glands.
The SI derived unit of magnetic flux. A magnetic flux of one weber, passing through a conducting loop and reduced to zero at a uniform rate in one second, induces an electric potential of one volt in the loop. One weber is equal to one volt per second, or 108 maxwells. The weber is named after German scientist Wilhelm Eduard Weber (1804-1891).
