n] is assumed to be the radius of the proton, plus 3% (since on this value the radius of the neutron magnetic moment distribution is increased in comparison with that of a proton), then
The neutron magnetic moment will follow the magnetic field direction if the adiabatic condition is fulfilled:
The projection of the neutron magnetic moment on the magnetic field direction is an adiabatic invariant.
