The SI unit of magnetic flux density, named after Nicola Tesla.

1T is equal to 1 weber per square meter in the mks (meter-kilogram-second) system .

The average magnetic field strength of the earth is 0.00005 T or 0.5 G

This natural static magnetic fiels varies geographically from ~30 to 70µT

A long straight wire carrying 100 A of current produces a magnetic field of 0.001 T (10 G) at a distance of 2 cm from the wire.

The CGS unit of magnetic flux density is the gauss (G), 1 tesla (T) = 10000 gauss (G).
