Etymology: Gk, magnesia, lodestone; Gk, izein, to cause
the magnetic polarization of a material produced by a magnetic field (magnetic moment per unit volume).


(mag″nĕt-ĭ-zā′shŏn) M
A measure of the degree to which a body displays magnetic properties. It is a vector field whose magnitude is equal to the local value of the magnetic moment per unit volume.

Patient discussion about magnetization

Q. who much cost the resonance magnetic machine? new or used

A. here is a company that you can even get a MRI scanner in a leasing program:

Q. hey guys! has anyone ever tried a chinese magnet to help a diet?? Somwone I know who is a chinse medicine healer, gave me a special magnet you stick to the right thumb of your hand to help evoid snack attacks. Did you ever hear anything about it?? did iot help anyone??

A. i tried magnets. not to dieting but magnets to the feet. supposed to help in giving energy while walking (i hike a lot). couldn't say i felt a big difference, but i only tried it for a day- so i don't know...

natural remanent magnetization (NRM)) was measured using either the AGICO JR-6A spinner magnetometer or 2G Superconducting Rock Magnetometer 755 (SQUID), and the magnetic susceptibility ([chi]) was checked with the AGICO KLF-4A Automatic Magnetic Susceptibility Meter.

4B and C, all the magnetic materials based on the IR resin have shown lower magnetization than those prepared with the G resin (Fig.
The extent to which magnetization varies within a single flow is not well known, but it is reasonable to assume that the 1993 lava flow has relatively homogeneous magnetization because it erupted as one single flow and cooled relatively quickly.
For rock magnetic investigation acquisition of the isothermal remanent magnetization (IRNi) and Lowrie (1990) test were performed.
The backing bar was designed using finite element modeling and the three-pole magnetization is key to its use.
This delivers extraordinary magnetic performance, coercivity exceeding 3000 oersted, and extremely high saturation magnetization of over 120emu/g.
Continuous measurements of very weak magnetization intensities are now routinely made with the horizontal pass-through cryogenic magnetometer aboard JOIDES Resolution, and most techniques required for detailed magnetic analyses can also be used in ship laboratories.
The initial magnetization of oceanic crust can be virtually destroyed by thermal and chemical processes at work in such vent systems.
The coercivity does not change with the filler content, and the saturation magnetization increases linearly with the filler content.
