NMR - nutation frequency

  1. May 18, 2009 #1

    The nutation frequency in NMR is given as

    [tex] \omega_{1} = - \gamma B_{1}[/tex]
    Here gamma is the gyromagnetic ratio and B1 the radio frequency field.

    My problem is that this is all well and good, but what does omega 1 actually represent in an NMR experiment? What is its physical meaning?

    It is the frequncy of the magnetization at resonance condition in rotating co ordinate system.
