The spin Ilamiltonian of EPR is used in the trace formalism to derive the paramagnetic susceptibility of a salt, containing paramagnetic ions in sites of axial crystal symmetry. The resulting equation holds for all values of electron spin and angle between the crystalline field axis and the external magnetic field.
