what is impeadence of ionized air?
berkeman said:I've done some google and wiki searching, but I didn't find a good link. Basically, when you have a full-on arc, the impedance is very low (like a wire). The terms to search on are ionization, glow, arc, spark, etc. Spark gap protection devices for data line networks are basically short circuits when they arc over.

Emicro said:A couple more things that needs to be taken into account are air pressure and humidity. These things can change the resistance of air quite dramatically
