Question[edit]

This article says "one ampere per meter is ten thousand oersted". The Oersted article says "One oersted equals 1000/4π, or 79.58 ampere-turns per meter". They can't both be right.

The first is wrong. One ampere per meter is 0.01257 oersted. [1] 76.185.59.253 (talk) 11:35, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
