Magnetic Susceptibility

Magnetic Susceptibility
Definition:When a substance is exposed to a magnetic field of strength H, it will be magnetized and the induced magnetization is directly proportional to the field strength of the applied magnetic field. The magnetic induction (magnetic flux density) is composed of two parts, the magnetic field H and the induced magnetization (magnetic moment per unit volume) M: B = H + 4π M. The magnetic susceptibility χ is given by M = χ H. It is a dimensionless, substance-specific quantity and is also called volume susceptibility. More commonly used is the molar magnetic susceptibility.
