The slow motion of an incompressible, viscous electrically conducting fluid, in the presence of a uniform aligned magnetic field, past a sphere is studied. Solutions obtained by Chester, using Stokes’ approximations, and by Blerkom and Ludford, using Ossen’ approximations, are reviewed. Expressions for stream functions are obtained for MHD Stokes’ flow and Oseen’ flow respectively.
