Susceptibility, which one

  1. Nov 26, 2009 #1
    I am trying to find the susceptibility for Bismuth, but I don't know which one I am after. Wikipedia gives molar, mass and volume. In my experiment we where asked to calculate the susceptibility, but not which one so I don't know which one I should compare with.

    In the experiment we used the formula

    Fz = -(1/2mu0)*XA(B21-B22)

    Where Fz is the force in direction z, against gravity
    X is the susceptibility
    A is the area
    B1 is and B2 are magnetic flux at different points,

    MaxManus is hoping for the best

    What are the units of X that is used in your formula or textbook? If you compare that with the units of the molar-, mass-, volume-based susceptibilities, one of them should have the same units.

    Thanks. Volume was unit less, the same was the answer in my experiment
