Charged particles in a liquid and B field

  1. Nov 21, 2015 #1
    I would like to ask your opinions on what would happen if you had a liquid containing charged particles and then applied a sinusoidal magnetic field?

    1. would the particles move in one direction and when the current changes direction then move in the other direction?
    2. would there be a macroscopic flow in the liquid as a result?
    3. just to check, can you have a sinusoidal current flowing through a solonoid which causes the magnetic field to change direction?

    Thanks for any opinions on this.
