1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I have a linear dielectric material. The electric field in the material is 38% less than a vacuum field with the same external sources. I need to find the susceptibility of the material? 2. Relevant equations P=[tex] \chi(vacuum) [/tex] E P= [tex] \chi(material) [/tex] .62E 3. The attempt at a solution i did the ratio of the 2 and i found [tex] \chi(material) [/tex]= 1.61 is this correct?
