Permeability has several meanings:

  1. In electromagnetism, permeability is the degree of magnetisation of a material in response to a magnetic field.
  2. In geology, permeability is a measure of the ability of a material to transmit fluids through it.

Permeability (electromagnetism), in electromagnetism, is the degree of magnetisation of a material in response to a magnetic field.
Permeability (fluid), in earth sciences, is a measure of the ability of a material to transmit fluids.
Vascular permeability, the movement of fluids and molecules between the vascular and extravascular compartments.
Permeability (240 words)
In SI units, magnetic flux density is measured in tesla, magnetic field strength in ampere per metre and permeability in henrys per metre.
In geology, permeability is a measure of the ability of a material (typically, a rock) to transmit fluids.
For a rock to be considered as an exploitable hydrocarbon reservoir, its permeability must be greater than approximately 100 md (depending on the nature of the hydrocarbon - gas reservoirs with lower permeabilities are still exploitable because of the lower viscosity of gas with respect to oil).
