Larmor radius

Larmor radius

[′lär·mȯr ‚rād·ē·əs]
(electromagnetism)
For a charged particle moving transversely in a uniform magnetic field, the radius of curvature of the projection of its path on a plane perpendicular to the field. Also known as gyromagnetic radius.

The radius of gyro motion is called the Larmor radius. The fluid description with the finite Larmor radius (FLR) effects is referred to as the gyrofluid or the Landau fluid and such effects are reflected in the pressure and the heat flux.
