The flow of a dielectric liquid

  • D. V. Eremchenko


The nature of the forces acting on a dielectric liquid in an electric field in the presence of a temperature gradient is investigated. It is shown that the electrical forces produced by nonuniformity in the electrical conductivity of the medium can give rise to a hydrodynamic flow.
