Dynamics of a nonmagnetic drop suspended in a magnetic fluid in a rotating magnetic field

Gases and Liquids


The behavior of a nonmagnetic drop suspended in a magnetic fluid and subjected to the action of a rotating magnetic field is studied experimentally. The configurations of the drop in the form of prolate and oblate ellipsoids of revolution in the rotating field are investigated, and disintegration of the drop in the rotating field and the development of comb instability of its surface under certain conditions are observed.
