4.11.3. The rate of the gain in energy and rigidity for the mechanism of acceleration by magnetic pumping
Let the duration of total cycle of magnetic field variations be
The mean rate of the gain in the kinetic energy (in the non-relativistic case), rigidity, and total energy will then be, considering Eq. 4.11.9, 4.11.10, and 4.11.8 respectively:
