    ASTM A894 / A894M

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the measurement of saturation magnetization of magnetic materials using a vibrating-sample magnetometer.

    1.2 Explanation of symbols and abbreviated definitions appear in the text of this test method. The official symbols and definitions are listed in Terminology A340.

    1.3 The values stated in either customary (absolute (or practical) cgs-emu) units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with this method.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
