# Electric susceptibility

The electric susceptibility χe is essentially the constant of proportionality (which may be a tensor) relating an applied electric field E to the induced dielectric polarisation P such that:

{\mathbf P}=\epsilon_0\chi_e{\mathbf E} [itex]

Where ε0 is the electric permittivity of free space.
