The well-known magnetohydrodynamic law of isorotation is normally associated with infinite electrical conductivity. Parameters which are relevant to real fluids are the magnetic Reynolds number Rm= mu 0 sigma av0 and the Hartmann number M=B0a( sigma / mu )12/. In experiments with liquid metals rm is the order of 10-3 but M can be made large compared with unity. Boundary conditions are important and are discussed using a two dimensional model. Examples of isorotation and departures from… Expand
