Magnetic Susceptibility VS. Relative Permeability

    What is the difference between the two and what are the applications of them in a magnetic material?

    Presumably you have looked up the definitions of the terms ... the same sources should provide examples.
    So what is the problem?

    (note: sounds like the sort of question that gets asked for homework).

    I have and the explanations of the two have confused me. To me they both sound like the samething. Can you give me a clear explanation of the two?

    One is to do with magnets, and the other to do with magnetic fields.
