Abstract: The stability of a magnetic fluid subject to a normal magnetic field at the second harmonic resonance is investigated. The stability characteristics are examined on the basis of two coupled dynamical equations that are solved numerically. The solution reveals that there exists an explosive instability when the applied magnetic field strength is in the neighbourhood of the bifurcation magnetic field strength $ H_{m}$ .
