Magnetic Susceptibility Balance

"The ratio of the intensity of magnetism induced in a substance to the magnetising force or intensity of field to which it is subject"

Basic Principles of Magnetic behaviour:

Based on their magnetic properties, all substances can be classified into one of three groups, those attracted by a strong magnetic field, known as paramagnetic, those repelled, designated diamagnetic, and, finally, the most recognised class, ferromagnetic, unique in their ability to retain their own magnetic field. Ferromagnetics are able to retain a permanent magnetic field since their free electrons are in close proximity and remain aligned even after the external magnetic field is removed.

Unlike the ferromagnets, the magnetic properties of the diamagnetic or paramagnetic materials could only be observed and measured when these samples are held within a magnetic field applied externally,
