Magnetic susceptibility
Susceptibility Sus*cep`ti*bil"i*ty, n.; pl. {Susceptibilities}. [Cf. F. susceptibilit['e].] 1. The state or quality of being susceptible; the capability of receiving impressions, or of being affected. [1913 Webster]

2. Specifically, capacity for deep feeling or emotional excitement; sensibility, in its broadest acceptation; impressibility; sensitiveness. [1913 Webster]

{Magnetic susceptibility} (Physics), the intensity of magnetization of a body placed in a uniform megnetic field of unit strength. --Sir W. Thomson. [1913 Webster]

Syn: Capability; sensibility; feeling; emotion. [1913 Webster]
