Answer:

The study of the interaction of magnetic fields and electrically conducting fluids (as plasma or molten metal).

Explanation:

The word magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) is derived from magneto- meaning magnetic field, hydro- meaning water, and -dynamics meaning movement.

Examples of such fluids include plasmas and liquid metals. The set of equations which describe MHD is a combination of the Navier-Stokes equations of fluid mechanics and Maxwell's equations of electromagnetism.
