A magnetic detector such as MINOS which is
measuring the sign of muons has to deal with
issues of bending, which depend on the magnetic field configuration,
and multiple scattering, which depends on the amount of material
which is traversed. Above some momentum which depends on
these factors, the momentum cannot be resolved. Issues related
to measurement of the muon charge ratio in MINOS
are discussed.
