The magnetic moment is defined as a vector relating the aligning torque on the object from an externally applied magnetic field to the field vector itself.
The relationship is given by:
τ = μ * B
τ is the torque acting on the dipole
B is the external magnetic field
μ is the magnetic moment.
The magnetic moment is a quantity that determines the torque it will experience in an external magnetic field.
