Solution: An open MRI scanner can produce a magnetic field strength of up to 3 T. If the space between the poles of the magnet (where the patient lies) is cylindrical, with a diameter of 2 m and a height of 70 cm, answer the following questions: (a) What is the magnetic energy density within this MRI? (b) What is the total magnetic energy contained within the MRI?

Problem

An open MRI scanner can produce a magnetic field strength of up to 3 T. If the space between the poles of the magnet (where the patient lies) is cylindrical, with a diameter of 2 m and a height of 70 cm, answer the following questions:

(a) What is the magnetic energy density within this MRI?

(b) What is the total magnetic energy contained within the MRI?
