2. One dimensionless parameter In addition to ρ, ν, σ and μ, we add just one of U , H or B in turn. In each case, there is one pertinent dimensionless parameter according to Vashy-Buckingham: not surprisingly, this is the magnetic Prandtl number identified previously. tex; 22/05/2008; 17:25 18 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 p. 18 T. Alboussière The question whether these five parameters can describe an interesting problem can be asked. At least, when U is the additional parameter, the answer is definitely yes.

Those dimensional parameters involve four fundamental units (m, kg, s, A). They are not dimensionally independent though, as 1/(μσ ) has the same dimension of ν. It is called the magnetic diffusivity (m2 s−1 ). 2. One dimensionless parameter In addition to ρ, ν, σ and μ, we add just one of U , H or B in turn.
