Pertaining to, or exhibiting the phenomena of, diamagnetism; taking, or being of a nature to take, a position at right angles to the lines of magnetic force. See Paramagnetic.
Any substance, as bismuth, glass, phosphorous, etc., which in a field of magnetic force is differently affected from the ordinary magnetic bodies, as iron; that is, which tends to take a position at right angles to the lines of magnetic force, and is repelled by either pole of the magnet. Contrasted with paramagnetic and ferromagnetic.
A repulsion by a material from a strong magnetic field. It will try to find its way to the weakest part of the magnetic field.
Repelled by magnetic fields. Diamagnetism is the property which causes a mineral to be repelled from magnetic fields.
relating to or exhibiting diamagnetism; slightly repelled by a magnet
a material inside which any externally applied magnetic filed will be greatly reduced
having a magnetic permeability less than that of a vacuum; slightly repelled by a magnet
Compounds with pairs of orbital electron(s) with paired spins, such that the molecule has no net magnetic moment.
a substance that will slightly decrease a magnetic field when placed within it (its magnetization is oppositely directed to the magnetic field, i.e. with a small negative magnetic susceptibility).
This term is used for anything that is slightly repelled by a magnetic field; the atoms of such substances will have their motion altered at right angles or slightly away from a strong magnetic force. (See also Paramagnetic).
