# Magnetic Permeability

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Electrical Engineering

Magnetic permeability, abbreviated as $$\mu$$, also called permeability, is the ability of a material to respond to how much electromagnetic flux it can support to pass through itself within an applied electromagnetic field.

## Magnetic Permeability FORMULA

 $$\large{ \mu = \frac{B}{H} }$$

### Where:

$$\large{ \mu }$$  (Greek symbol mu) = permeability

$$\large{ H }$$ = total magnetic field outside the material (magnetic field)

$$\large{ B }$$ = total magnetic field inside the material (magnetic intensity)

$$\large{ M }$$ = total magnetic field created by the material

$$\large{ X }$$ = magnetic susceptibility

### Solve For:

 $$\large{ B = \mu \; H }$$ $$\large{ M = X \; H }$$
