A new physical effect is described for the behaviour of magnetically (electrically) anisotropic objects in an alternating external field. These objects (large molecules or clusters of molecules in solutions) acquire an induced moment in a direction different from that of the field. The resulting driving force is the cause of periodic vibrations and rotations as well as of chaotic motion. Only objects of special size confined from above and below are able to execute non-damped motion and to transfer energy from an external field to the medium. The statistical properties of the linearized equation of motion are analyzed in detail. It turns out that the peculiarities of the mechanical motion manifest themselves also in the statistical description.
