Encyclopedia > Tesla (unit)

The tesla (symbol T) is the SI derived unit of magnetic flux density (or magnetic induction) and defines the intensity (density) of a magnetic field.

This SI unit is named after Nikola Tesla. As for all SI units whose names are derived from the proper name of a person, the first letter of its symbol is uppercase (T). But when an SI unit is spelled out, it should always be written in lowercase (tesla), unless it begins a sentence or is the name "degree Celsius".
