No source of the electric field in magnetohydrodynamics

Previously unused fundamental magnetohydrodynamic (MHD hereafter) relations are presented objects with high electrical conductivity. The source of the electric field is time-independent and, therefore, should be absent for such objects if it is absent initially. This is an obvious consequence of the classical law of electric charge conservation in MHD. The obtained relations could serve for sufficient simplifications and verifications of the solutions to various MHD problems. Refs 6.
