Magnets in Biological Research
The starting point of any discussion of magnetic fields is generally a description and rationalization of the terms used in the discussion. This approach seems appropriate in view of the many sets of units in use—cgs-emu, cgs-esu, mksa—and the different ways in which magnetic effects have been defined historically. Complicating the matter of units is the fact that measurable magnetic fields range from the geomagnetic field (earth’s field, approximately 0.5 G) to the 106 G produced by the spectacular implosion technique.
