To calculate potential energy of paraelectric crystal

  1. Aug 24, 2015 #1
    I understand that to calculate the potential energy of a paramagnet you use U=2μBBS
    but is there an equation to calculate the energy of a para-electric crystal.

    Also, if this equation required S, would that always be N/2 (is a para-electric crystal always completely polarised?)
