- the magnetic flux that remains in a magnetic circuit after an applied magnetomotive force has been removed.
- physics the ability of a material to retain magnetization, equal to the magnetic flux density of the material after the removal of the magnetizing fieldAlso called: retentivity
- The magnetic flux density remaining in a material, especially a ferromagnetic material, after removal of the magnetizing field. Good permanent magnets have a high degree of remanence. Remanence is measured in teslas. Also called retentivity Compare coercivity.
