As nouns the difference between ampere and permeability
is that ampere
is a unit of electrical current, the standard base unit in the international system of units abbreviation: amp, symbol: a while permeability
is the property of being permeable.
* , amp, A
A unit of electrical current, the standard base unit in the International System of Units. Abbreviation: amp, Symbol: A
- Definition: The ampere is that constant current which, if maintained in two straight parallel conductors of infinite length, of negligible circular cross-section, and placed 1 metre apart in vacuum, would produce between these conductors a force equal to 2 x 10–7 newton per metre of length. (

the property of being permeable
the rate of flow of a fluid through a porous material
(geology) a measure of the ability of a rock to transmit fluids (such as oil or water)
(physics) a quantitative measure of the degree of magnetization of a material in the presence of an applied magnetic field (measured in newtons per ampere squared in SI units).
