Torque measurements were performed on a high-quality single crystal of the uniaxial superconductor 2H-NbSe2 in a tilted magnetic field 0-200 kG, in the temperature range 1.5-4.2 K. The transverse component of the absolute magnetization was derived in a magnetic field directed at an angle of 77° to the axis of anisotropy, and its field dependence was analyzed in a reversible domain of the mixed state. The penetration depth and anisotropy characteristics were obtained for the sample under study.
