# Linear Current Density Converter

Linear Current Density represents the electric current flowing through a conductor per unit length. It is denoted by the symbol "J" and is typically measured in units of current per unit length (e.g., A/m, A/cm, A/in, abA/m, abA/cm, abA/in, Oe, Gi/cm).

Below are the most common units used to express linear current density and their corresponding conversion factors:

• Ampere per meter (A/m): The amount of electric current in amperes flowing through a conductor per meter length.
Conversion Factor: 1 A/m = 1 A/m (Base Unit)

• Ampere per centimeter (A/cm): The amount of electric current in amperes flowing through a conductor per centimeter length.
Conversion Factor: 1 A/cm = 100 A/m

• Ampere per inch (A/in): The amount of electric current in amperes flowing through a conductor per inch length.
Conversion Factor: 1 A/in = 1 / 0.0254 A/m ≈ 39.3701 A/m

• Abampere per meter (abA/m): The amount of electric current in abamperes flowing through a conductor per meter length. (CGS unit)
Conversion Factor: 1 abA/m = 10 A/m

• Abampere per centimeter (abA/cm): The amount of electric current in abamperes flowing through a conductor per centimeter length. (CGS unit)
Conversion Factor: 1 abA/cm = 1000 A/m

• Abampere per inch (abA/in): The amount of electric current in abamperes flowing through a conductor per inch length. (CGS unit)
Conversion Factor: 1 abA/in = 1 / 0.00254 A/m ≈ 393.7 A/m

• Oersted (Oe): A unit used to measure magnetic field strength.
Conversion Factor: 1 Oe ≈ 79.5775 A/m

• Gilbert per centimeter (Gi/cm): A unit equivalent to the Oersted.
Conversion Factor: 1 Gi/cm = 1 Oe ≈ 79.5775 A/m
