Homework Help: Scale reading

  1. Oct 14, 2006 #1
    2000 millitesla setting, it readsi 100 does this mean the field is 0.2T or 0.1T? I was pretty sure it was 0.2T but a demonstrator said the field had a maximum of ~1T but I'm getting a max of 2T.

    The meaning of the scale setting is that on this particular setting the meter can read values up to 2000 mT. So 100 on the scale means that the reading is 100 mT.
