Hi all,

Recently I learned about magnetization

I understand that you apply a magnetic field B, and that your magnetization M is proportional to the field ... H? Like so,

\mathbf{M}=\chi\mathbf{H}

What is the \mathbf{H} field, though? It is the 'auxiliary' magnetic field, but what does that mean?

Please shed some light on this (probably very trivial) matter, if possible.

Thanks,

gahando

EDIT: My apologies if this question has been asked \inf times
