I am studying electromagnetic theory and when I started researching the history of conventions used in magnetic interactions I could not get them. The basics of how they modelled the magnetic interaction are a bit confusing.

Like what is "number of magnetic field lines" trying to convey when field line are just a simple visualisation tool and approximation of the underlying magnetic vector field.

And why further concepts are build using this visualisation tool idea of field lines?

Like if field lines are just for visualisation why do measuring quantities such as magnetic flux and magnetic flux density and magnetic flux intensity and magnetic field strength depend on the amount of those field lines? I can draw how many ever field line I want right?

And how to correlate these measuring quantities such as magnetic flux and magnetic flux density and magnetic flux intensity and magnetic field strength with respect to the Vector field?
