Magnetization, Coefficient of Induced
The coefficient (q. v.) expressing the relation between the specific intensity of magnetization of a particle and the magnetizing force. The magnetizing force is measured by the lines of force it can produce in a field of air. The coefficient of induced magnetization is the factor by which the intensity of a magnetizing field must be multiplied to produce the magnetization imparted by it to a particle of any substance. This coefficient varies for different substances, and is also called magnetic susceptibility. It is distinguished from permeability as referring only to a particle isolated from influence of a mass of surrounding particles of its own kind. It is definable as the intensity of the magnetization assumed by an exceedingly long and exceedingly thin bar placed in a unit field. If a mass of metal were placed in such a field all its particles would become affected and within the mass no unit field could exist. Hence magnetic susceptibility (another name for this coefficient) does not apply to the case of large cores of electro-magnets and dynamo-armatures, but is really a theoretical rather than a practical figure. The sign of the coefficient of diamagnetic bodies is negative; of paramagnetic bodies is positive. Synonym--Magnetic Susceptibility. Magnetization, Cycle of
