    How do plasma particles interact with a magnetic field?

    To continue the discussion: The mass of the ions are much greater than the mass of the protons. If by assuming they are in LTE thus having the same temperature thus the same velocity, their respective interaction with the magnetic field differs. Some interesting things I have come across states...

    How do plasma particles interact with a magnetic field?

    Thank you for the reply! I am a PhD candidate in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. I do have Chen’s book as it was the first place I turned to in attempting to answer this question (not a homework problem). I am familiar with the formula you proposed however, it is for single particles...

    How do plasma particles interact with a magnetic field?

    How does plasma particles (ions, electrons, neutral particles as a whole) interact with an applied steady-state magnetic field? If you have plasma at atmospheric pressure ejected from a plasma torch in the z-axis direction (upwards/north), how will two permanent magnets, axially aligned N-S to...
