the gyromagnetic ratio (also sometimes known as the magnetogyric ratio in other disciplines) of a particle or system is the ratio of its magnetic dipole moment to itsangular momentum, and it is often denoted by the symbol ?, gamma. Its SI units are radian per second per tesla (rad s?1·T -1) or, equivalently, coulomb per kilogram (C·kg?1).

The term "gyromagnetic ratio" is sometimes usedcas a synonym for a different but closely related quantity, the g-factor. The g-factor, unlike the gyromagnetic ratio, is dimensionless. For more on the g-factor, see below, or see the article g-factor.
