Recently, a new formalism for the temperature dependence of the anisotropy of the paramagnetic spin susceptibility of metals has been developed. We apply this theory to paramagnetic metals HCP scandium and yttrium. Calculated results show the paramagnetic spin susceptibility along the c axis, chi-c, to be greater than that along the a axis, chi-a, within the temperature range of 0-300 K for both metals. These results are consistent with experiment, when the Van Vleck orbital susceptibility is taken into account. Our results also suggest that the magnetic moments of transition metal impurities in Sc and Y will align with the c axis.
