Hi, I am very pleased that you apparently have read parts of my book, Mondo Magnets. The magnetic force on water is a product of the field strength and how rapidly it is changing with distance. In the demonstration here http://www.hfml.ru.nl/froglev.html they succeed in levitating a live frog and a ball of water in a VERY LARGE field of 160,000 Oe! A quart of water could also be levitated simply by using a superconducting magnet with a larger bore. You may also enjoy my Mondo Magnets DVD which is for sale at www.Supermagnetman.net Fred Jeffers
