## Relative magnetic permeability

Relative magnetic permeability is defined as the ratio of permeability of medium (μ) to the permeability of free space (μ0)

μr = μ/μ0

or                                 μr = B/H/(B0/H)

or                                 μr = B / B0

is permeability of free space.

## Magnetic permeability

Magnetic permeability is defined as the degree to which the magnetic lines of force can penetrate or permeate the material. It can also be defined as the ability of the material to permit the passage of magnetic lines of force through it.

As the magnetic induction is proportional to the magnetising field

B proportional H

or                     B = μH

where μ is called the permeability of the medium (material)

## Intensity of magnetisation

It represents the extent to which a specimen is magnetised when placed in a magnetising field.

Or in other words the  intensity of magnetisation of a magnetic material is defined as the magnetic moment per unit volume of the material.

M = Magnetic moment/volume = μM / V                            …1

Let       a = Uniform area of cross-section of the magnetised specimen.

l = magnetic length of the specimen.

m = strength of each pole of the specimen,

As                    μm = ml

and                   V = al

then equation (1) becomes

M = m x 2l / a x 2l

or         M = m/a

thus intensity of magnetisation of  a  magnetic material is also defined as the pole strength per unit area of cross-section of the material.

Unit :    M= magnetic moment / Volume

M= Amp.metre2 / metre3 = Am -1

These are S.I unit of M

## Magnetic Intensity

Magnetic intensity is same as magnetizing force.

Therefore, it is also defined as the degree to which a magnetic field can magnetise a material is expressed in terms of magnetizing force.

Consider a toroidal solenoid with n turns per unit length carrying a current I. The magnetic induction of the field produced will be Continue reading “Magnetic Intensity”
