## Do SuperFluids respond to Magnetic Fields?

 Quote by BrianConlee And also, what source can I use to determine the validity of any given physics theorem?
Well, there certainly is no oracle to which one can appeal for the truth.

Ultimately, any physics "theorem" must be held accountable to experimental facts.

P.S. In these kinds of endeavors some well-honed critical thinking skills can be very useful. See, for example:

 while reading about your desire to control the spin of a superfluid, 3 things occurred to me that you might like to do some research into... here are 3 interesting questions I would like you to try and answer... 1: do superfluids conduct sound ? 2: could a longitudinal sound wave induce movement in a super fluid, like a pump ? 3: How with standing wave patterns and amplified resonance within the volume could I control the fluids speed and direction. Let me know how you go " theZenMonkey.

 Quote by olgranpappy No. There's a critcal flow velocity above which the fluid is not super. What exactly the critical velocity is depends on the excitations of the super fluid. Usually people begin discussions of the excitations by considering "phonons" and "rotons", but actually (if I remember correctly) it is the creation of vortex rings that is the limiting factor in determining the critical velocity. As for your other questions... Regarding superconductivity try the book "Introduction to Superconductivity" by Tinkham. Regarding superfluids there is some discussion in Landau and Lifshitz "Statistical Mechanics II". Also for superfluids see "The Theory of Quantum Liquids Vol. II" by Pines and Nozieres.
does this just mean that the flow cant be turbulent?

superfluids conduct sound and 'second sound'.
