Propagation of waves on the free surface of magnetic fluid is experimentally investigated. It is found that the surface velocity of the magnetic fluid depends on the intensity and frequency of traveling magnetic fields, and depth of the channel contained with the magnetic fluid. Theoretical investigation is also carried out in order to clarify the phenomena.
