Plasma parameters
Plasma parameters define various characteristics of a plasma, an electrically conductive collection of charged particles that responds collectively to electromagnetic forces. Plasma typically takes the form of neutral gaslike clouds or charged ion beams, but may also include dust and grains. ^{[1]} The behaviour of such particle systems can be studied statistically. ^{[2]} Additional recommended knowledge
Fundamental plasma parametersAll quantities are in Gaussian cgs units except temperature expressed in eV and ion mass expressed in units of the proton mass μ = m_{i} / m_{p}; Z is charge state; k is Boltzmann's constant; K is wavelength; γ is the adiabatic index; ln Λ is the Coulomb logarithm.
