    Hi all,

    Does anybody know anything about zero flux (definition, applications)?



    thx all

    Not much to say. It's sorta like "Seinfeld", a show about nothing.

    We never appreciate anything until it's gone. :p

    This almost seems like a backward way of asking what flux is. Once you know what the definition of flux is, then the definition of zero flux should be clear.

    As far as applications, one thing that comes to mind is superconductors which expel all magnetic fields under the right conditions. Superconductors may be the only place in the solar system that have truely zero flux.

    Flux cancelation also comes to mind. For example deliberately letting magnetic fields cancel to minimize inductance.

    Try using the search term "galvanic separation."

    I go back to my math books that say anything times zero is equal to zero. Zero is the absence of any value. Zero is just that an indication of absence of values.
