Torque required to restrain the ferrofluid-filled plastic spindle as a function of magnetic field amplitude at various frequencies for the (a) water-based and (b) Isopar-M ferrofluids in a clockwise rotating uniform magnetic field generated by a two-pole induction motor stator winding. Interpolating lines have been added to aid the reader in distinguishing trends in the data

Comparison between torque experimental measurements and predictions (solid lines) of (18) for the water-based ferrofluid (obtained using χ=0.65,η=7×10−3 Nsm−2,ζ=1.4×10−3 Nsm−2,τ=10−5 s, and κ=100). (a) Corresponds to clockwise rotation of the magnetic field and (b) corresponds to counterclockwise rotation of the magnetic field

Comparison between torque experimental measurements and predictions (solid lines) of (18) for the Isopar-M ferrofluid (obtained using χ=2.2,η=11×10−3 Nsm−2,ζ=2.0×10−3 Nsm−2,τ=2×10−6 s, and κ=100). (a) Corresponds to clockwise rotation of the magnetic field and (b) corresponds to counterclockwise rotation of the magnetic field.
