In the present technical note, drag on axially symmetric body for conducting fluid in the presence of a uniform magnetic field is considered under the no-slip condition along with the matching condition(ρ2U2=H02μ3σ) involving Hartmans number and Reynolds number to define this drag as Oseen’s resistance or Oseen’s correction to Stokes drag is presented. Oseen’s resistance on sphere, spheroid, flat circular disk (broadside) are found as an application under the specified condition. These expressions of Oseen’s drag are seems to be new in magneto-hydrodynamics. Author claims that by this idea, the results of Oseen’s drag on axially symmetric bodies in low Reynolds number hydrodynamics can be utilized for finding the Oseen’s drag in magneto hydrodynamics just by replacing Reynolds number by Hartmann number under the proposed condition.
