Definition name: tesla

Unit name: tesla
Latin symbol: T
Display symbol: T

Description: A derived SI unit for magnetic flux density equal to kg·s⁻²·A⁻¹ in the 2019 SI units.

The tesla was defined as 1 Wb/m in the introduction of the SI unit system the 11th CGPM Meeting in 1960, resolution 12, implicitly redefined via the redefinitions of the second at the 13th CGPM Meeting in 1967, resolution 1, the ampere (implcitly via the redefinition of the metre) at the 17th CGPM Meeting in 1983, resolution 1, and the kilogram and ampere at the 26th CGPM Meeting (2018), resolution 1.
