What happens, if one shoots a bullet into an MRI system? Is there any chance to fully stop the bullet?
Consider an MRI machine with a reasonalby strong magnetic field (~3T) and tunable gradient coils. Furthermore, suppose we have a standard gun and bullet to shoot into the field of the machine.
Can we find a trajectory, that stops the bullet from leaving the MRI system?
For example, stopping it, reversing it, leading it on a circular path inside the machine etc. etc.?
Update: The stationary field inside the MRI machine seems to be a bad candidate, as it follows the centerline in a parallel fashion. So, is there any chance of eddy currents inside the bullet that help slowing it down? I found the x-y-gradient fields in a typical MRI system, the peak gradient is about 35-45 mT/m.The slew rate, which is defined as peak gradient over rise time can reach up to 200 T/m/s.
