Abstract : The systematic errors inherent in the numerical evaluation of the various moments of an experimental paramagnetic resonance line shape are discussed as a function of the choice of the arbitrary cutoff of wing contributions. Lorentz and Gaussian first derivative line shapes are used as models. Expressions for the zeroth, second, and fourth moments of these line shapes are derived in terms of generalized coordinates, and the arbitrary cutoff. Use of the generalized coordinates, which contain parameters related to easily measured experimental quantities, permits application of the results to any line shape of the Lorentz or Gaussian form.
