A quantity representing the line integral of the magnetic intensity around a closed line (e.g., the sum of the magnetizing forces along a circuit).
- A magnetomotive force may be produced by a permanent magnet or by a wire (preferably, however, by several turns of wire) through which a current of electricity is flowing.
- So, the back-magnetomotive force of the secondary coil opposes the magnetomotive force of the primary coil, compelling it to consume power from the source.
