What is the definition of a plasma?
« on: August 26, 2004, 12:09:54 AM »
I would like to know what the standard definition of a plasma is? I know it is an ionised gas but how do these things exist and how are they formed? Does a standard flame (such as a gas flame) have any plasma like properties?
If anyone can answer any of these questions I would be very grateful,

Thanks from Australia :)

Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex
