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] (talk) 11:35, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Ampere per meter[edit]

Is this always short for ampere-turn per meter ? - Rod57 (talk) 15:47, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

/* Personality */[edit]

Gauss may not have been a prolific publisher but to say he didn't write much is misleading. His correspondence was voluminous. He wrote many letters to other mathematicians, and wrote often to his sons in Missouri. His private journals were later published and ran to many volumes. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mathsinger (talkcontribs) 04:27, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

When in use[edit]

Article should say when the term was defined or came into use, and when it was superceded and when it was used until or if it is stil used in some fields or regions ? - Rod57 (talk) 15:38, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
