A Weight changes under strong, uniform magnetic fields?

  1. Jul 8, 2018 #1
    Has anyone ever looked for reversible weight changes while materials are subjected to uniform, strong magnetic fields, such as those involved in nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or spectroscopy? I suspect no one ever has, for lack of a reason, and any such effects would have to be subtle, else someone would have noticed by now.

    Interesting info. Are the magnetic fields typically employed here strong enough to cause nucleons in the atomic nuclei to line up (as in NMR/MRI), rather than just the atoms' electrons?
