    The electric and magnetic polarizabilities of the proton and neutron are calculated in the framework of the MIT bag model. Neglecting vacuum-polarization we get αp = αn = 10.8 × 10-4 fm3, βp = 2.3 × 10-4 fm3 and βn = 1.5 × 10-4 fm3, in good agreement with experiment. The difficulties in treating the vacuum-polarization consistenly are discussed. It is argued that the polarizabilities may offer a possibility to measure the effective size of nucleon bags inside of nuclei. © 1984.
