Abstract : This report discusses the dielectric properties of magnetoplasmas by first considering a plasma at rest and then causing acceleration by increasing the electric field, E, slowly. The polarization current is calculated, then gravity is added which causes a current to flow. It is found that under the J x B force, the plasma stops in time and then reverses its direction of flow. Finally, the study considers an alternate treatment which does not involve dielectric properties. (AN)
