Unit EG
Name exagauss
Category Magnetic Flux Density
Details Exagauss (EG) is a unit of magnetic flux density, which represents the strength of a magnetic field in a given area. It measures the force exerted by a magnetic field on charged particles like electrons and protons.

Magnetic flux density is commonly measured in tesla (T) or gauss (G), where 1 T = 10,000 G. Exagauss (EG) is a unit of magnetic field representing 10^18 Gauss or 10^14 Tesla. It is rarely used in everyday applications and is mainly of interest in research areas that study extremely strong magnetic fields, like those found around neutron stars or during astrophysical events.
