  • a In this notation 'emu' is used not as a proper physical unit, but rather to indicate the type of units. In some cases susceptibility can be recalculated if 'emu' is replaced by cm3.
  • b $μ_B$ denotes the Bohr magneton, which itself has a different unit in CGS and SI systems, but the “per unit” value scales in the same way in both systems, hence the conversion factor is unity.
  • c Magnetic dipole moment per unit volume.
