The magnetization anisotropies of Bi2Sr2CaCu2Oy and YBa2Cu3O7-x single crystals have been investigated by simultaneously measuring the longitudinal (ML) and transverse (MT) components of the equilibrium magnetization of crystals oriented at arbitrary angles with respect to the applied field direction using a superconducting susceptometer. In the regime where the simple threedimensional (3D) anisotropic London theory is valid, the measurement of MT/ML yields the anisotropic mass ratio (m3/m1) directly.
