Magnetic diffusivity is a term that appears in the induction equation, when we deal with plasma fluids. It has units of meter squared per second.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am unable to figure out what does the diffusion of plasma as a fluid implies.. It has something to do with magnetic field interacting with the plasma..

Someone please provide a detailed explanation..
