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...

The magnetization measurements for washed samples, both for sample 4A and 4C were also carried out after the gels brought to the collapsed state.
These characteristics allow the resistance value to be read at lower voltages than before, suppressing the tendency of the read operation to reverse the direction of magnetization and avoiding the problem of erroneous write operations.
Sample mean ChRM improved as result of demagnetization by removal of viscous magnetization acquired by these rocks with the precision parameter (K) increasing from 4.
In Goss texture polycrystalline materials, the directions representing different degrees of difficulty in magnetization are 0[degrees], 55[degrees]-60[degrees] (according to the technology of the strip production) and 90[degrees].
Once the calculated magnetization of the model is available, it can then be used in all other Opera modules - such as solvers for the design of rotating machines or linear actuators - to study and optimize the performance of the overall equipment itself.
Looking beyond the mechanics of the dual magnetization process, the team had to tackle a more practical problem: packing the magnets into a single pig.
The direction of the magnetization recorded by rocks can be used to date various geological events.
0L]--initial magnetizations, Gaussian and Lorentzian, respectively--were calculated by fitting of experimentally determined dipolar-dephasing dependences according to the equation describing the decay of mixed Lorentzian and Gaussian carbon magnetization (M) through the Gaussian and Lorentzian dipolar-dephasing decay time constants [T.
The DC bias magnetization at room temperature improved 17%, as compared with N41 power material.
Therefore, we applied rapid methods developed for inverse problem solving in complicated environments (inclined medium magnetization and observation line, an unknown level of the normal magnetic field).
Thus small, high-density bits can be written easily on AFC media, but they will retain their magnetization due to the media's overall thickness.
Immediately after magnetization, the magnetic flux is analyzed, and the controller indicates a go/no-go signal.
