Conversion of the Bohr Magneton Number

Mathematical formulas with the words Conversion of the Bohr Magneton Number

It happens quite often that a phase was modelled using different chemical formulas in different thermodynamic assessments. In this situation, if the contribution from magnetic ordering is involved, the value used for the Bohr magneton number ought to be different to have the same magnetic contribution to the molar Gibbs energy of the phase. Unfortunately, many mistakes can be found in publications regarding the conversion of this important magnetic parameter. In this blog, I present the proper equations for the conversion.
