Can a ferrofluid protect an egg?
« on: 15/04/2015 21:26:52 »
If we place an uncooked egg in a pool of ferrofluid in a container surrounded by a quadrupole magnetic field and dropped the container from a height of 10 meters would the magnetically stabilized ferrofluid prevent the egg from damage and the forces of momentum?  Basically asking if the ferrofluid can act as an acceleration damper.

strong magnetic fields can be used as a damper ...
