Paramagnetism is a magnetic state where atoms align themselves to an externally applied magnetic field. In the absence of a magnetic field, the atoms do not retain their alignment due to excessive thermal vibration, in contrast to ferromagnetic materials, which do. Consequently, paramagnetism is often observed in heated ferromagnetic materials.
