Homework Help: Accuracy of Magnetic moment

  1. Nov 3, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The oscillation period of a torsion oscillation magnetometer of T=3s can be measured with an accuracy of 1µs. Let the moment of inertia of the sample and holder have a value of J=10-6kgm2. Evaluate the accuracy with which a small magnetic moment can be determined

    2. Relevant equations

    No Idea

    3. The attempt at a solution
