Abstract : The one-dimensional steady flow of a compressible inviscid conducting gas through a transverse magnetic field is characterized by a single non-dimensional plot, independent of conductivity. The coordinates are the magnetic field strength and the fluid flow velocity; parameters which characterize events are the entrance Mach number, constant electric field, and the ratio of magnetic energy density to initial flow kinetic-energy density (the magnetic pressure number).
