The magnetic susceptibility is negative for
A. paramagnetic materials only
B. diamagnetic materials only
C. ferromagnetic materials only
D. paramagnetic and ferromagnetic materials
For paramagnetic and diamagnetic materials the intensity of magnetization I of a material is directly proportional to the magnetic intensity H
This proportionality constant is known as susceptibility of a material.
Now in a diamagnetic material the individual atoms of the material do not have a net magnetic dipole moment. When such a substance is placed in a magnetic field, dipole moments are induced by the applied field. From lenz’s law the magnetic fields due to induced magnetic moment opposes the original field
The magnetization () and magnetic intensity () are therefore in opposite direction and of a diamagnetic material is therefore negative.
Therefore, susceptibility of a material is negative only for diamagnetic materials

When a dielectric is placed in an electric filed, it gets polarized. The electric field in a polarized material is less than the applied field. When a paramagnetic substance is kept in a magnetic field, the field in the substance is more than the applied field.
