What is magnetic permeability?

The magnetic permeability of a material describes the extent to which it is able to support a magnetic field (inside itself). It describes the amount of magnetization that takes place in a material when an external magnetic field is applied. Materials with a high magnetic permeability are able to support a stronger magnetic field within themselves.
