a.

Gaussian units and cgs emu are the same for magnetic properties.

The

defining relation

is

B

=H

+

477M.

b.

Multiply a number in Gaussian units by C to convert it to SI (e.g., 1 G X

10-

T

/G

=

10-

4

T).

c.

SI (Systeme International d'Unites) has been adopted by the National Bureau

of

Standards. Where

two

conversion factors are

given, the upper one

is

recognized under,

or

consistent with, SI and

is

based on the definition B =

1J-o(H

+M), where

1J-o

=

477

X

10-

H/m.

The

lower one

is

not recognized under SI and

is

based on the definition B

=1J-oll

+J, where the symbol

I

is

often used

in

place

of

J.

A/m

was often expressed

as

"ampere-turn per meter" when used for magnetic field strength.

g.

Magnetic moment per unit volume.

h.

The

designation "emu"

is

not a unit.

Recognized under SI, even though based on the definition B =

1J-oll
