DeGausing... Gause is a measure of magent force.

I'm not sure how that (or this reply) helps the original poster in this topic, but the unit Gauss (not gause or Gaus) was named after Karl Friedrich Gauss, the German mathematician. It is the unit of magnetic flux density equal to a field of one line of force per square centimeter.

1 gauss = 1 Maxwell / cm2, but it's a different Maxwell from the one we all know here. No, I didn't remember the formula - way too far back in my magnetic theory for that.

Gauss was honored with his "photo" (image) and a diagram of a Gaussian (aka "normal" or bell-shaped) distribution on a German bank note. I have one around here somewhere from my days as a practitioner of

~~witchcraft~~ statistics, but haven't laid eyes on it since we last moved.

Before anyone jumps one me, the SI unit of measurement is the Tesla. 1 Tesla=1x104 Gauss.

Bottom line, a small inverter will power a TV without worrying about the math, but don't get one too small.
