Abstract


In the present paper the relationship between various energies in Magnetohydrodynamic multicomponent convection problem has been established, the configuration being considered analogous to thermohaline convection of Stern (Stern, M.E., Tellus. 12 [13], 172-175) type. The established relationship proves that the total kinetic energy associated with a disturbance exceeds the sum of its total magnetic and thermal energies in the parameter regime  where , ,  and  represent the Chandrasekhar number, the thermal Prandtl number, the magnetic Prandtl number and the Rayleigh number respectively. Further, this result is valid for the quite general nature of the bounding surfaces.


Keywords
