SI unit is not AT
If you look closely at the (cited) SI brochure you will see that the SI unit is Ampere. Ampere turn is a colloquial form which should be avoided. If I have no contraddiction I will change the text. --Alkemyst

Fraktur, without question, is the most disgusting font to ever use for maths. Its unreadable, unreproductable and destroys the appearance of the equation. Whoever did, please × ∞ NEVER × ∞∞ use it again. I will obliterate all fraktur notation in physics equations, and replace with mathcal. If it doesn't matter what you call a variable then don't use something so stupid. Thank you. F=q(E+v^B) (talk) 08:12, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
Reluctance is not comparable to resistance!
There is a common misconception that just because V=IR and =ΦR look the same, the reluctance is understood to be the magnetic counterpart of resistance.
In fact, reluctance is not dissipative. An ideal inductor (pure reluctance) is a storage element. In reality, voltage applied to an inductor results in flux change not flux. And current in the inductor is proportional to the MMF.
As a result, what is really happening is that is being integrated the same way that current is integrated in a capacitor. As a reault, the reluctance is a capacitive element and not a resistive element.
