In physics and electrical engineering, the **magnetic susceptibility** is the degree of magnetization of a material in response to an applied magnetic field. The dimensionless **volume magnetic susceptibility**, represented by the symbol (also represented in the literature by κ or Κ), is defined by the relationship Physics (Greek: (phÃºsis), nature and (phusikÃ©), knowledge of nature) is the science concerned with the discovery and understanding of the fundamental laws which govern matter, energy, space, and time and explaining them using mathematics. ...

where μ_{0} is the **permeability of free space** (see table of physical constants), and is the **relative permeability** of the material. Note that this definition is according to SI conventions. However, many tables of magnetic susceptibility give cgs values that rely on a different definition of the permeability of free space. The cgs value of susceptibility is multiplied by 4π to give the SI susceptibility value. For example, the cgs volume magnetic susceptibility of water at 20°C is -7.19x10^{-7} which is -9.04x10^{-6} using the SI convention. // ...

There are two other measures of susceptibility, the mass magnetic susceptibility in cm^{3}•g^{-1} (χ or χ_{g}) and the molar magnetic susceptibility (χ_{m}) in cm^{3}mol^{-1} that are defined as follows where ρ is the density in g•cm^{-3} and M is molar mass in g•mol^{-1}. Molar mass is the mass of one mole of a chemical element or chemical compound. ...
- χ
_{g} = χ_{v} / ρ - χ
_{m} = *M*χ_{g} = *M*χ_{v} / ρ If χ is positive, then (1+χ) > 1 and the material is called paramagnetic. In this case, the magnetic field is strengthened by the presence of the material. Alternatively, if χ is negative, then (1+χ) < 1, and the material is diamagnetic. As a result, the magnetic field is weakened in the presence of the material. Paramagnetism is the tendency of the atomic magnetic dipoles, due to quantum-mechanical spin, in a material that is otherwise non-magnetic to align with an external magnetic field. ...
Diamagnetism is a very weak form of magnetism that is only exhibited in the presence of an external magnetic field. ...
Volume magnetic susceptibility is measured by the force change felt upon the application of a magnetic field ^{[1]}. Early measurements were made using the Gouy method where a sample is hung between the poles of an electromagnet. The change in weight when the electromagnet is turned on is proportional to the susceptibility. Today, high-end measurement systems use a superconductive magnet. An alternative is to measure the force change on a strong compact magnet upon insertion of the sample. This system, widely used today, is called the Evan's balance. For liquid samples, the susceptibility can be measured from the dependence of the NMR frequency of the sample on its shape or orientation^{[2]}^{[3]}^{[4]}. The introduction to this article provides insufficient context for those unfamiliar with the subject matter. ...

The **magnetic susceptibility** of a ferromagnetic substance is not a scalar. Response is dependent upon the state of sample and can occur in directions other than that of the applied field. To accommodate this, a more general definition using a tensor derived from derivatives of components of *M* with respect to components of *H* Ferromagnetism is a phenomenon by which a material can exhibit a spontaneous magnetization, and is one of the strongest forms of magnetism. ...
In mathematics, a tensor is (in an informal sense) a generalized linear quantity or geometrical entity that can be expressed as a multi-dimensional array relative to a choice of basis; however, as an object in and of itself, a tensor is independent of any chosen frame of reference. ...
In mathematics, a derivative is the rate of change of a quantity. ...
called the *differential susceptibility* describes ferromagnetic materials, where i and j refer to the directions (e.g., x, y and z in Cartesian coordinates) of the applied field and magnetization, respectively. The tensor is thus rank 2, dimension (3,3) describing the response of the magnetization in the j-th direction from an incremental change in the i-th direction of the applied field. Ferromagnetism is a phenomenon by which a material can exhibit a spontaneous magnetization, and is one of the strongest forms of magnetism. ...
When the coercivity of the material parallel to an applied field is the smaller of the two, the differential susceptibility is a function of the applied field and self interactions, such as the magnetic anisotropy. When the material is not saturated, the effect will be nonlinear and dependent upon the domain wall configuration of the material. In material science, the Coercivity of a ferromagnetic material is the intensity of the magnetic field required to reduce the magnetization of that material to zero after the magnetization of the sample has reached saturation. ...

When the **magnetic susceptibility** is studied as a function of frequency, the permeability is a complex quantity and resonances can be seen. In particular, when an ac-field is applied perpendicular to the detection direction (called the "transverse susceptibility" regardless of the frequency), the effect has a peak at the ferromagnetic resonance frequency of the material with a given static applied field. Currently, this effect is called the **microwave permeability** or **network ferromagnetic resonance** in the literature. These results are sensitive to the domain wall configuration of the material and eddy currents. Ferromagnetic resonance, or FMR, is a spectroscopic technique to probe the magnetization of ferromagnetic materials. ...
