This question already has an answer here:
This question might be trivial but I have a conceptual confusion regarding permittivity and susceptibility of a dielectric
According to Wikipedia, permittivity is the ability to resist external electric field. This means a substance with high permittivity requires high external electric field to polarize. On the other hand, susceptibility is defined as the ability to polarize. So a substance with higher susceptibility should polarize easily. This means both the quantities are inversely proportional to each other but mathematically they are linearly dependant
Where am I going wrong?
I get it that there is a similar question but the answer for that question did not answer mine and I still did not get the privilege of commenting as I am a newbie. That's why I posted it as a separate question
I understood the definitions but couldn't understand the mathematical relation
