Pronunciation

edit
  • IPA(key): /ˈtɛslə/
  • Audio (US):(file)

Noun

edit

tesla (plural teslas or tesla) (see usage notes)

  1. In the International System of Units, the derived unit of magnetic flux density or magnetic inductivity. Symbol: T
    • 2015 August 18, John Timmer, “Small, modular nuke plant proposed—this time for fusion”, in Ars Technica[1]:
      In a draft paper, REBCO wiring has been reported to produce magnetic fields over 35 Tesla; the ARC design only needs 20T fields.

Usage notes

edit
  • The SI brochure (Sec 5.3) notes that [u]nit names are normally printed in upright type and they are treated like ordinary nouns. This includes the normal rules of plural formation.
  • The NIST Guide for the Use of SI (Sec. 9.2) states: Plural unit names are used when they are required by the rules of English grammar. They are normally formed regularly, for example, “henries” is the plural of henry. According to Ref. [6], the following plurals are irregular: Singular —lux, hertz, siemens; Plural —lux, hertz, siemens. (See also Sec. 9.7.) There is no special exception for tesla.
  • When using the unit name tesla as an adjective, it is normally not pluralized. Compare the following:
  1. The nine-volt battery provides a potential difference of nine volts.
  2. The two-tesla magnet produces a flux density of two teslas.
  • Despite this distinction, the nonstandard plural forms Tesla or tesla are frequently found in scientific and lay literature. (See above quotation.)
