Abstract Using a simple model we analyze qualitatively the deformation that terrestrial magnetic field suffers due to the presence of the solar wind; we also studied the electrical currents generated into the solar wind due to the presence of Earth’s magnetic field. Keywords: Magnetosphere, Solar Wind, Magnetic Field. 1 Introduction Many problems of magnetohydrodynamics do not have analytic solutions and have to be approached using simple models that help to understand some important phenomena and to distinguish amongst the more and less influential ones.

Mendoza and J.
Morales Terrestrial magnetosphere is the layer of the atmosphere related to terrestrial magnetic field, where interactions between the magnetic field and the wind coming from the Sun occur, deforming the magnetic field in the direction of solar wind flow.
The solar wind is a “ionized gas” with a very large electrical conductivity, chiefly made up of protons and electrons of high velocities [1, 8, 9]. As the velocity of this fluid is so large, far away from the source of magnetic field it is not affected appreciable due to terrestrial magnetic field, however th...
