a measure of the magnetization of a material per unit of applied magnetic field
In electromagnetism, the magnetic susceptibility is a dimensionless proportionality constant that indicates the degree of magnetization of a material in response to an applied magnetic field. A related term is magnetizability, the proportion between magnetic moment and magnetic flux density. A closely related parameter is the permeability, which expresses the total magnetization of material and volume.
The Standard Electrical Dictionary
The specific intrinsic susceptibility of any material for magnetic induction. It refers to the particle of matter, and not to the mass, as in the latter its own particles react on each other and bring about what is termed permeability, q. v. (See also Magnetization, Coefficient of Induced, and Magnetic Induction, Coefficient of.) Synonym--Coefficient of Induced Magnetization.
