Abstract The high magnetic field available in a magnetized block of iron may be used to measure the momentum of noninteracting particles such as mu -mesons provided that the line integral of the magnetic induction is known with sufficient accuracy. Model picture frame magnets were constructed in order to investigate the effects of geometry and of degree of magnetization on the uniformity of the magnetic induction. The relative merits of passing the particles through the energizing coils or the open ends are considered. It is found that high inductions, with uniformity of plus or minus 3%, may easily be obtained over 90% of the available volume for comparatively low power dissipation. (auth)
