What is another word for paramagnetic?

Pronunciation: [pˌaɹəmɐɡnˈɛtɪk] (IPA)

The term paramagnetic refers to a material that is weakly attracted to a magnetic field. Similar words to describe this property could be magnetic, but with lower intensity, or magnetizable. Additionally, terms like ferromagnetic, diamagnetic, or antiferromagnetic are often used to describe materials with different magnetic behaviors. Ferromagnetic materials show strong attraction to magnetic fields, diamagnetic materials are repelled by magnetic fields, and antiferromagnetic materials show a more complex behavior, where atoms or molecules within the material behave as magnets, but the net magnetic moment is zero, leading to no magnetic response at the macroscopic level.
