In analogy with the fact that there are magnetic moments associated respectively with the electron's orbital and spin motion in an atom we present several analyses on a proposal to introduce a concept of intrinsic magnetic flux associated with the electron's orbital and spin motion. It would be interesting to test or to demonstrate Faraday's and Lenz's laws of electromagnetic induction arising directly from the flux change due to transition of states in an atom and to examine applications of this concept of intrinsic flux.
