Alfven Velocity Calculator

Alfven wave is a type of magnetohydrodynamic wave in which ions oscillate in response to a restoring force provided by an effective tension on the magnetic field lines. Let this Alfven velocity calculator ease your calculations. Enter the magnetic flux density, permeability of free space and plasma mass density to calcualte the Alfven Velocity (speed) of magnetohydrodynamic wave. The result is the Alfven speed.

The Alfven wave is named after Hannes Alfven. It is the wave that occurs in plasma due to the oscillation of ions when the electric currents and magnetic field interacts. Calculation of Alfven velocity (speed) of magnetohydrodynamic wave is made easier using this online Alfven velocity calculator.
