I'm interested in doing a project that involves submerging a very strong if not supercooled electromagnet in water; i'm concerned about the effect of the EM field on the water itself.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know a bit about Magneto Hydro Dynamics but i don't have the math skills to understand it entirely. college freshman and all.

I understand that when you insert a magnetic field of a certain form (involving charged plates etc...) into water with current running through both the plates and the water, the water will follow the field lines; is this correct?

So my questions:

1. Does the EM field from an insulated EM coil interact with water alone (no current passing through it)?

2. Does the EM field from an insulated EM coil interact with water which has a current running through it?

Answers do not need to go incredibly deep into MHD because what i'm doing does not deal directly with MHD. I'm concerned about the possible side effects it may generate.

Thanks-

Tay
