## Homework Statement

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?

## Homework Equations

I used

P=[tex]\epsilon[/tex][tex]\chi(vacuum)[/tex]E

P=[tex]\epsilon[/tex][tex]\chi(material)[/tex].62E

## The Attempt at a Solution

i did the ratio of the 2 and i found

[tex]\chi(material)[/tex]= 1.61

is this correct?
