Identifiers Interactions.A formula is derived relating the force on the magnet to electrical conductivity, velocity, and magnetic field. Experimental results show that the formula correctly predicts the dependence on velocity and applied magnetic field. The force calculated as a function of L, the dis ance between the meter and the moving conductor, exceeds the measured force. However, the changes in force with changes in L appear correctly accounted for by the formula. The force on the conductivity meter which was flown aboard RVX-2A Number 423 would have been 5.7 milligrams at peak electrical conductivity. Author
