Curie constant

[′kyu̇r·ē ¦kän·stənt]
(electromagnetism)
The electric or magnetic susceptibility at some temperature times the difference of the temperature and the Curie temperature, which is a constant at temperatures above the Curie temperature according to the Curie-Weiss law.

It is well known that the susceptibility ([chi]) follows the Curie-Weiss law, [chi] = C/(T - [[theta].sub.P]), in the paramagnetic region, where C is the Curie constant and [[theta].sub.P] is the CurieWeiss temperature.
