Magnetic Susceptibility of Dental Amalgams

The electrical behavior of any material when subjected to an
electromagnetic field is dependent upon its magnetic susceptibility.
The following abstract is from an experimental study published in 1940
to determine the magnetic susceptibility of various metal amalgams.
"The investigation of the magnetic properties of non-homogeneous
systems: part I, experimental technique
L F Bates, C J W Baker and R Meakin
University College, Nottingham
Received 10 January 1940
Abstract. A description is given of a new apparatus and technique for
the examination of the magnetic susceptibility of a non-homogeneous
material, with particular reference to the investigation of amalgams of
metals in dilute solution in mercury. An important feature of the
apparatus is that the electromagnet has one pole tip with a cylindrical
surface and one pole tip with a plane face, so that when an amalgam is
placed in a vertical tube suspended from a torsion balance, each portion
of the amalgam is exposed to the same value of the gradient of H2 in the
direction along which motion of the tube is possible; consequently,
measurements can be made with amalgams which separate on standing."

Does anyone know if any investigations have ever been carried out to
determine the magnetic susceptibilities of the metal amalgams commonly
used in dentistry?
Can I find out this information from any reliable scientific source?
Or does everyone just guess at it, as with every other electrical
property of dental amalgams which the dental profession is completely
ignorant of?
(Remember, amalgam fillings are placed in children's teeth.)

I remember reading a study that said that the electromagnetism from a computer monitor increased mercury vapour release three-fold. You might be able to find it on google.

What would be the millivoltage of amalgam restorations within high magnetic fields? I was always wondering about that ....... well since twelve minutes ago anyway.

I heard computer monitors emit 348 millivolts but amalgam fillings emit 349 millivolts. I am wondering why they are not the same.

Why don't you consult the physics abstracts which most campus libraries have going back more than 100 years? We can't do your homework for you, especially when you plan to misinterpret physical phenomenology for your own personal, political gain.

Gum used to come wrapped in tin foil. To feel the effects of that 360 mV, chew on some tin foil with those fillings. :-)

Qualitatively true, but do you think it's quantitatively important? Do any of the materials used in amalgams have a relative permeability significantly different from 1?

You have been flogging this question for years now. It is obviously very important to you that you should get an answer.
Please let us in on the secret of why the answer is so important to you.

I have no idea, but Keith Walsh has spam-bombed this newsgroup with 350 millivolts as the figure generated by amalgam fillings in situ. What do you think about it?
