Such gas acts as a conductor of electricity and when employed as a "magnetohydrodynamics" generator it can be used for a variety of purposes.
Then I read a few chapters from a graduate student's thesis-in-progress; nothing like a little magnetohydrodynamics to get the blood flowing.
They claim that magnetohydrodynamics is needed to treat atmospheric flows.
I like Hannes Alfren's experiments with liquid mercury to help explain the concept of magnetohydrodynamics.
It involves the magnetohydrodynamics of the interstellar medium and the region of the heliopause, which is much smaller.
What we are proposing is that the dark matter is really a plasma, and to understand how structure forms, one needs to consider dark magnetohydrodynamics.
Obviously the solution of these problems can be attained only by combined efforts of specialists, working in dendroclimatology, paleoastrophysics, mathematical statistics, geophysics, magnetohydrodynamics, solar physics and cosmic plasma physics.
Here we have over 50 years of both theory and physical observation in the areas of high energy plasma ,and the difficulties of magnetohydrodynamics physics which is nearly as hard to spell as explain.
If the individual features are not understood and important to the understanding of the magnetohydrodynamics of the sun, then how can the variability of the sun be understood?
By the time he died he had over 150 papers published, most of them on magnetohydrodynamics.
