# Hall coefficient

## Definitions

### Electronics

- A constant of proportionality utilized when performing calculations associated with the Hall effect. When calculating the strength of the electric field,
*E*_{H}, the following __formula__ may be utilized: *E*_{H} = *R*_{H}JB, where *R*_{H} is the Hall __coefficient__, *J* is the current density, and *B* is the magnetic flux density. The sign of the Hall coefficient changes with the sign of the __charge carrier__, so it serves to indicate the sign of the majority carrier. Also called Hall constant. - synonymHall constant
