Magnetisation Curve and Hystersis Loop

  1. Aug 23, 2005 #1
    Ok. Im having trouble identifing the saturatoin field on the Hysteresis Loop. How do I find it?Also the initial and maximum relative permeability. Is the maximum relative permeability infinte?

    The "saturation field" is the field at which the curve just about levels out.
    The initial relative permeablilty is the slope (divided by mu0 in SI units)
    at the origin for H starting from zero.
    The max RP is the max slope of the B vs H curve.
