Physics:Gilbert (unit)

From HandWiki

The gilbert (Symbol: Gb) is an obsolete unit used in practical cgs and emu cgs systems to measure magnetization.[1] The unit is named for English physicist William Gilbert. Definition in magnetization:

  • 1 Gb = (1/4π) Bi-turn

Conversion to ampere-turns:

  • 1 Gb = (10/4π) A-turn = 0.7957747 A-turn[1]
  • 1 A-turn ≡ 4π × 10−1 Gb[1]
