compass

Turns on to headings will be made at the standard rate, but using the stop-watch, not magnetic compass .

Remember that the magnetic compass , clock and stop-watch are your most important navigation instruments.

If this is simply a directional gyro it must be synchronised with the magnetic compass at frequent intervals.

dipole

In this case a substantial internal magnetic dipole moment is expected.

The rotation depends on the scalar product of the electric dipole and magnetic dipole transition moments.

In order for a planet to possess a magnetosphere it need not have an internal magnetic dipole moment.

The reason for the low upper limit on the internal magnetic dipole moment is not properly understood.

Observations by Mariner 10 have demonstrated that Mercury does have an intrinsic magnetic dipole moment.

The upper limit on the internal magnetic dipole moment is only 0.00005 of that of the Earth.

disk

Search times are usually slower than magnetic disks , because the reading head has to follow a track.

Electronic cameras record light as a series of digital impulses on a magnetic disk .

field

The radio waves, magnetic field and computer technology combine to produce vivid images of the body's soft tissue.

They sank a drill in the exact center of the magnetic field to get a core sample for study.

Not surprisingly these force patterns resemble the pattern of magnetic field lines across the aperture of a quadrupole magnet.

Until recently geophysicists thought that at this low point the magnetic field would also go haywire.

They say that the concentrated magnetic fields in sunspots spread out all over the sun somewhat after the maximum of solar activity.

The magnetic field is thus one aspect of the earth that scientists have studied in detail for centuries.

Maximum resonance occurs at a specific conjunction of microwave frequency and magnetic field strength.

The magnetic field that led to its discovery had vanished at the moment of that radio shriek.

flux

The left hand can also be used to demonstrate the magnetic flux surrounding a wire carrying a current.

The field at these sites is particularly intense, as if the magnetic flux lines have been tied into tight bundles.

The other acts as a pickup coil producing a voltage proportional to the rate of change of magnetic flux linking it.

Together with differential rotation, this causes a large amount of mechanical energy and magnetic flux to pass through the surface.

Coiling the wire into a loop permits directional flow of the magnetic flux through the loop.

force

Believing in your Dreams is a powerful magnetic force !

Internal injuries are detected through magnetic forces which are then relayed on to computer screens.

He felt as if he were pressing against a strong, polarised magnetic force .

They sear across the ice, moving in unison as if some magnetic force holds them together.

Maybe it is these that enable them to feel within their bodies the contours of the earth's magnetic forces .

Neutral atoms enter this cloud rather than Io's torus because they are not influenced by magnetic forces whereas charged particles are.

What had happened was that the passage of electrical current created huge magnetic forces which constricted the tube.

media

The computer-controlled telescope stores these images on magnetic media .

north

To all intents and purposes, though, magnetic north remains north.

The compass needle points to the magnetic north pole.

The flow of a magnetic field is taken from magnetic north pole to magnetic south pole.

Two people standing at distant points on the globe would have completely different ideas about where the magnetic north pole lay.

True magnetic north , as measured by compasses, is several hundred miles to the east.

pole

For the past eleven years, the Sun's north geographic pole has also been home to its north magnetic pole.

But a feature of each solar cycle is that the magnetic poles reverse.

For R N transitions they should have plotted the north magnetic pole .

pull

The newly created Reclamation Service exerted a magnetic pull on the best engineering graduates in the country.

resonance

After undergoing a magnetic resonance imaging test yesterday at Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia, Gagne was told what doctors had already suspected.

Because of its superior contrast capabilities magnetic resonance imaging is the current first choice technique for assessing instability of the cervical spine.

Others use magnetic resonance imaging, like those used to find tissue damage in humans, to detect explosives.

This unusual complication is best imaged by computed tomography or nuclear magnetic resonance and needs conservative treatment.

In addition, researchers did magnetic resonance imaging scans of the women's legs to look for increases in muscle size.

Of special interest are the clearly presented sections on spectral jumps, and single-spin magnetic resonance experiments.

They are using a type of magnetic resonance imaging to demonstrate consciousness in comatose patients.

survey

Ground magnetic surveys were continued in the Exeter district to investigate anomalies seen on aeromagnetic contour plots.

During the past year we have been conducting a magnetic survey of the region, from a low-level satellite.

tape

Occasionally users still require their data on magnetic tape and so this facility remains available.

This included new forms of magnetic tapes , each of which could hold hundreds of intercepted microwave communications channels.

Data were downloaded on to magnetic tape for long term storage.

Reams of data, miles of magnetic tape , but none of it satisfies even my own primitive appetite for answers.

Furthermore, some media such as magnetic tapes are subject to storage degradation if they are not regularly used.

A dozen flying machines and their pilots would be no more than a blip on a piece of magnetic tape .

Small files that demand multiple-key handling are usually stored on magnetic tape and processed sequentially.

The transfer medium is magnetic tape .

magnetic/gravitational/force field

All that is left is a strong, but invisible, gravitational field .

All this occurs in magnetic fields very much above the maximum tolerated by the superconducting state.

As the star shrank, the gravitational field at the surface would become stronger and the escape velocity would increase.

At the upper critical field the magnetic field completely penetrated the sample and it reverted entirely to its normal state.

In a few rare cases, lava flows on land have taken place just as the magnetic field was undergoing a reversal.

It does raise the question of how pigeons detect the magnetic field .

The flow of a magnetic field is taken from magnetic north pole to magnetic south pole.

The radio waves, magnetic field and computer technology combine to produce vivid images of the body's soft tissue.
