The unit of magnetic flux (magnetic field lines) is the Weber (Wb), but
what exactly does it mean? If it simply means the total number of lines
of flux, this would be very difficult to ascetain in reality. Magnetic
field lines are similar to contour lines on a map, and it could be argued
that there are an indefinte number of them. Does one Weber equal one line
