ABSTRACT Steady Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) Equations of force, density and energy for quantum plasmas have been derived. These equations constitute our Steady Magnetohydrodynamic model for quantum plasmas. All the quantum effects are contained in the last term of quantum force equation and in the last three terms of quantum Energy Equation, so-called Bohm potential and may be valuable for the description of quantum phenomena like tunneling.
