Fe ions in solution in a magnetic field

  1. Nov 6, 2014 #1
    I am wondering what happens when a magnetic field is applied across a solution of an iron salt (say in a beaker). Is a gradient formed? If nothing happens, why? What are the variables? Effect of oxidation state (ferrous or ferric)?

    Thanks for the post! Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    Well, I found this video. Don't know if it is a trick.
