We have measured the relaxation of energy and polarization m in transiently polarized liquid3He. The thermodynamics of the relaxation, the calorimeter set-up, and the experimental procedure are discussed in detail. We find that the magnetic field necessary to stabilize m, is higher than extrapolated from the low field regime. It amounts to 200 Tesla at m=0.6, T=70mK, P=26 bar.
