[′käm‚pleks ‚pər·mē·ə′bil·əd·ē]
(electromagnetism)
A property, designated by μ*, of a magnetic material, equal to μ0(L/L0), where L is the complex inductance of an inductance coil in which the magnetic material forms the core when the coil is connected to a sinusoidal voltage source, and L0 is the vacuum inductance of the coil.
