    • Abstract


      Ferroelectric single crystals such as lead hydrogen phosphate (LHP) and dihydrated lead nitrate phosphate (LNP) have been derived from the diffusion of lead nitrate into the set gel containing orthophosphoric acid. By employing Faraday’s Gouy balance technique, the magnetic susceptibilities of LHP and LNP have been determined. It has been observed that (i) the gram and molar susceptibilities are independent of magnetic field, (ii)χM of LNP materials are greater than that of LHP materials and (iii) the positive values of magnetic susceptibilities suggest that LHP and LNP are paramagnetic materials.
