permeability[pʉr′mē ə bil′ə tē]
Permeability is how easily liquid and gas passes through something.
An example of permeability is how fast water flows through a porous rock.
- the state or quality of being permeable
- the measure of the ease with which a magnetic field can establish magnetic induction in a particular material
- the rate of diffusion of a fluid through a porous body
- the property of a porous substance, as rock or a membrane, of allowing the flow of a fluid through it
- The property or condition of being permeable.
- The rate of flow of a liquid or gas through a porous material.
(usually uncountable, plural permeabilities)
- the property of being permeable
- the rate of flow of a fluid through a porous material
- (geology) a measure of the ability of a rock to transmit fluids (such as oil or water)
- (physics) a quantitative measure of the degree of magnetization of a material in the presence of an applied magnetic field (measured in newtons per ampere squared in SI units).
