Plasma questions

  1. Feb 14, 2018 #1
    If plasma is just ionized gas isn't it basically just a sea of mobile electrons but in gas, if not then how can a bunch of electrons and positive ions stay separate and the gas ionized for long.

    If the gas hot is enough even when they recombine they get ionized back pretty quickly.
