Abstract
A conservative formulation of the Lorentz force is given here for magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flows at a low mag-
netic Reynolds number with the current density calculated based on Ohm's law and the electrical potential formula. This
conservative formula shows that the total momentum contributed from the Lorentz force is conservative when the applied
