Abstract : A discussion is presented on the constancy and similarities of dynamics such as: magnetic Reynolds number, magnetic Mach number, the ratio of the viscous and magnetic diffusivities, Hartman number and various combinations of these values. In addition, an analysis is made of some of the intrinsic equations of magnetogasdynamics.
