(Greek: -etikos, an adjective suffix meaning "pertaining to, of the nature of" for nouns ending in -esis)
The intensity of the magnetic field at the Earth's surface is approximately 0.32 gauss at the equator and 0.62 gauss at the north pole.
A "gauss" is equivalent to 1 maxwell per square centimeter, and a "Maxwell" is equivalent to the flux that produces one abvolt in a one-turn circuit when the flux is reduced to zero at a uniform rate in one second, while a "flux" is the electric or magnetic field lines of force that traverse a given cross-sectional area.
2. Activating sugar so as to maintain the sugar level of the blood.
3. Tending to mobilize glucose; usually evidenced by a reduction of the glycogen stores in the tissues to produce an increase in the concentration of glucose circulating in the blood.
2. Resulting from the magnetic properties of a spinning, electrically charged particle.
