hello , could someone please remind me I have forgotten a few things. So the electric field is perpendicular to the conductor and the flow of charge. So if i have a pipe and in the pipe flows a conducting gas or a plasma , now around the pipe I have a simple copper wire wound in many many turns like a tesla coil. Now by giving impulses the higher up the coil the stronger the impulse gets by voltage and an electric field is proportional to voltage , now we also know that electric fields can accelerate charged particles , would such an impulse driven into a coil that is wound around a pipe in which a plasma is injected would accelerate the plasma throughout the pipe because the flow of the plasma would be in the same direction as the electric field thus the field would be getting stronger and stronger by every inch because the voltage builds up in such a pulsed coil. Now is my thinking correct or not? Also if used the same coil but just dc (non impulse ) would it have any effect on the gas or whatever is inside the pipe or not? In terms of accelerating it? As long as I think it shouldn't.
