Transcript of Lecture 4_ Para Magnetism

These materials don't possess permanent dipole and hence the magnetic effects are small Since the induced magnetic moment always oppose the applied field, the diamagnetic susceptibility is negative. It is always temperature independent. Diamagnetic materials usually repel the magnetic line of force. Summary Diamagnetism e.g.: Bi, H2O, CO2, Ge, Si etc. Material = (r -1) Cu -9.5x10-6 Al2O3 -5.0x10-6 Au -3.7x10-5 Ge -0.8x10-5 Si -0.3x10-5 Se -1.7x10-5 He -0.5x10-5 Para-magnetism B>B0 , _ is positive, r>1, . The permanent magnetic moment results from the following contributions: 1. The spin or intrinsic moments of the electrons. 2. The orbital motion of the electrons. 3. The spin magnetic moment of the nucleus. A form of magnetism which occurs only in the presence of externally applied magnetic field and materials are attracted to magnetic field. Paramagnetism Paramagnetism is observed in: 1. Metals 2. Atoms and molecules possessing an odd number of electrons, that is free sodium atoms, gaseous nitric oxide etc. 3. A few compounds having an even number of electrons (example Oxygen molecule) 4. Free atoms or ions having a partially filled inner shell e.g. rare earth and actinide elements, ions of some transition elements such as Mn2+ Manganese, platinum, tungsten, some members of rare earth group and ions formed by removing and adding electrons to basic atoms there by creating unpaired spins. Basic assumptions of Langevins classical theory The theory considers the paramagnetic solids in terms of paramagnetic gas, in which each particle is assumed to bear a permanent magnetic moment . Mutual interaction between dipoles is assumed to be negligible. Orientation of permanent magnetic dipole moment. Classical Theory of Paramagnetism TC= _Curies law : ) ( u_=TCCurie-Weiss law : .
