The calibrated gaussmeter was used to measure the magnetic field of a ceramic magnet. This was approximately 6mm in diameter and 10mm in length and, as the results below indicate, produce a field of about 0.3 Tesla at the pole face. The field falls much more quickly than the inverse square law would predict, and the curve is best approximated to a polynomial for empirical purposes.
