(electromagnetism)
The ratio of the magnetic flux density to the intensity of the magnetic field in a medium; measurement is in webers per square meter in the meter-kilogram-second system. Also known as induced capacity.
(petroleum engineering)
A measurement of the capacity for flow of a single fluid (water, gas, or oil) through a rock formation when the formation is completely saturated with that fluid.
