The *magnetic susceptibility* of a quark is a dimensionless constant written as $\, \chi_{m} \,$. It characterizes each thermodynamic type of quark as noted by the quark index $\, \zeta \,$. So in an extension of the hypothesis of conjugate symmetry we presume that ordinary-quarks and anti-quarks have the same magnetic susceptibilities. The values shown in the accompanying table are obtained from laboratory observations of magnetic moments and the **magnetic susceptibilities** of quarks are defined by this list.

**induced charge**to account for the relationship

$\mathcal{Q} \equiv k_{q \, } \chi_{m} \Delta n$

The constant $k_{q}$ is called the *elementary charge* measured in *Coulombs* and abbreviated by (C).
