Hall effect in the viscous flow of an ionized gas between two parallel walls under transverse magnetic field in a rotating system

Abstract

The equations of motion accounting for rigid rotation about an axis perpendicular to the flow have been given and exact solutions have been obtained for both velocities such as the primary flow as well as the secondary flow corresponding to the cases of non-conducting and conducting walls, taking into account the Hall currents. In case of non-conducting walls, it is found that these solutions foru, w are all independent of the partial pressure of the electron gas,s. The induced magnetic field is neglected under the assumption that the magnetic Reynolds number is small.
