The Standard Electrical Dictionary
The elongation a bar of iron or steel undergoes when magnetized. By magnetization it becomes a little longer and thinner, there being no perceptible change in volume. The change is accompanied by a slight sound--the magnetic tick. An exceedingly delicate adjustment of apparatus is required for its observation.
