Coercive power can only influence us to outward practice. --Bp. Warburton. [1913 Webster]

{Coercive force} or {Coercitive force} (Magnetism), the power or force which in iron or steel produces a slowness or difficulty in imparting magnetism to it, and also interposes an obstacle to the return of a bar to its natural state when active magnetism has ceased. It plainly depends on the molecular constitution of the metal. --Nichol. [1913 Webster]

The power of resisting magnetization or demagnization is sometimes called coercive force. --S. Thompson. [1913 Webster]
