Magnetomotive Force (MMF)

Magnetomotive Force (MMF) Definition Formula Unit Example

The force required to create a magnetic field is called the magnetomotive force, abbreviated to m.m.f. with a general symbol Fm. The magnetomotive force is the force that creates the magnetic field. The m.m.f. acts like the electromotive force in an electric circuit and is the force necessary to set …
