Hi! If you go to www.hyperphysics.phy- astr.gsu.edu/hbase/HFrame.html and click on condensed matter, then go to diamagnetism and check out the Table of magnetic susceptibilities, it states that Bismuth's magnetic susceptibility is -16.6, is that correct, is that equal to -1.66*10-4? Which should I use?
Answer 1:

The site looks right - I used the same website to look up the W, Z, and X bosons, actually. Tyhe units of M appear to be teslas, since magnetic susceptibility I believe is dimensionless.
