(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...

After washing 4C with pure water Co-clusters were destroyed and almost all of the [Co.sup.+2] ions washed out the gel (the percentage amount of [Co.sup.+2] ions in the composite was 38% and less than 0.5% before and after washing with pure water, respectively) resulting in a decrease in the magnetization of the composite material as mentioned above.
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.
This pulse-induced artificial recovery of longitudinal magnetization effectively compensates for the relative loss of CSF signal associated with shorter TR and restores the myelographic effect.
Sample mean ChRM improved as result of demagnetization by removal of viscous magnetization acquired by these rocks with the precision parameter (K) increasing from 4.64 to 25.74.
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.
The magnetic deformation signal is the product of the low magnetization signal minus a "scaled down" high magnetization level signal.
This approach sets the magnetization at a diagonal to theoretically improve the media's ability to hold magnetic charge while still being recordable.
The direction of the magnetization recorded by rocks can be used to date various geological events.
It's the first time someone's been able to use collective motion of electrons, known as plasmon, to induce a stable magnetization within such a non-magnetic semiconductor material."
