	%X The effect of a uniform magnetic field on the
formation of drops of specific size has been investigated numerically
in a T-shaped microchannel. Previous researches indicated that the
drop sizes of secondary stream decreases, with increasing main
stream flow rate and decreasing interfacial tension. In the present
study the effect of a uniform magnetic field on the main stream is
considered, and it is proposed that by increasing the Hartmann
number, the size of the drops of the secondary stream will be
decreased.
