Water rotating in a magnetic field

-Backyardjob

The moon does not cause the tides.

When an electrical charge travels through a magnetic field, in a direction perpendicular to the field, it is deflected in a 3rd dimension in a direction perpendicular to both the direction of its own movement and the direction of the field. The result in this experiment is that the water rotates. The same principle is used in the cathode ray tube used in old television sets. There the charges move through vacuum, whereas here they move through water.
