The net magnetic moment of an assemblage of randomly oriented dipoles

Article English OPEN
Kristjansson, L. (2011)

The expected distribution of net magnetic moments, as measured for a randomized assemblage of magnetic dipoles whose magnitudes have a lognormal distribution, is derived. The results are compared with experiments on rock chips.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1973.tb00614.x
