Need help understanding how plasma in a Tokamak loses energy.
Mainly I don't get how plasma loses energy by conduction, which is what I have read. Is it just from the collisions between plasma particles and the wall?

Neutral atoms also conduct heat out of the plasma. They have kinetic energy and simply pass through the magnetic field.
But most energy losses are through radiation.
