Magnetization measurements of the ferrite system Mg1+xMnxFe2−2xO4 were undertaken primarily to study variation of the saturation magnetization with manganese concentration and to gain information about the type of magnetic ordering. The observations indicate the existence of Yafet-Kittel (YK) type of magnetic ordering in this system which is well supported by results of Mössbauer effect measurements. A molecular field analysis of the YK spin ordering using the three-sublattice model is shown to explain the experimental data satisfactorily.
