Example values[change | edit source]
- 10−9–10−8 gauss – the magnetic field of the human brain
- 0.31–0.58 gauss – the Earth's magnetic field at its surface
- 25 gauss – the Earth's magnetic field in its core
- 50 gauss – a typical refrigerator magnet
- 100 gauss – a small iron magnet
- 600-70,000 gauss – a medical magnetic resonance imaging machine
- 1012–1013 gauss – the magnetic field on the surface of a neutron star
- 4×1013 gauss – the quantum electrodynamic threshold
- 1015 gauss – the magnetic field of some newly created magnetars
- 1017 gauss – the upper limit to neutron star magnetism; no known object in the universe can generate a stronger magnetic field
