Gotta love how such a profound concept, that most of the matter in the Universe is a plasma, gets a 3 minute 32 second video, with hardly any detail, & then we get numerous diatribes over dark matter, dark energy, essentially nonsense concepts belonging in the same category as flat earth research.
VIVA LA ELECTRIC UNIVERSE!!!
Yeah, I'm being sarcastic.. Chill Wal, chill.
I wonder if plasma could be used to induce chemical reactions? It sounds a lot like a powerful solvent, except that anything you mix into it may also go into plasma phase, thus preventing it from forming new bonds. Maybe the trick is to heat stuff to plasma and then let it cool into gas, whereupon it will take the gas form with the lowest energy state.
Dont you think that it is very unnecessary to exclude a seperate state of the matter from gas? I mean , sure it has some different properties than a common air or so but it s just an ionised gas. I mean metalic block is also formally ionised (that thing called metalllic bond) but we still call it a solid. Maybe it should be just a very pecif example rather than something new. It really confuses people. Seems like unnecessary complication.
Basically plasma is a state of matter that overall is the most common state of matter, taking up 99% percent of all occurrence in the standard model of 5 states of matter. But, not taking up to 99% in the visible universe, that is wrong I believe we all should already know that matter itself per se all of the known and possible other states of it in or other possible future to be discovered merely consists 0.04 of the entire observable universe as of now where comsmologists have already established basing on cosmic microwave background data the universe consists of 4% known matter, 73 percent dark energy, and 23 percent dark matter. git good.
stars are balls of plazma because they are electric devices. There is no fusion reaction inside. How long we will learn in school this bullshit? Ah.... if they are electrical devices there is no magic gravity.... damm.... now we know we kids are taking bullshit
You can make your own plasma with a glass, microwave, and a grape. You cut the grape in half and set it down in the microwave, cut side up. You put a drinking glass over the grape, better to use a clear one. Turn the microwave on and and you can start seeing plasma! Don't do it took long though because you could screw up your microwave.
+Daniell Bondad that's not true ...
plasma tv's were also made with DVI and VGA inputs, no hassle to watch youtube on those... also people who've got their xbox connected to a plasma tv can watch this without lasering a DVD (not a cd like you mention, or do you intend to listen to audio on a plasma tv without having video?)
+SamThe RandomG1rl Relative to that specific thing's heat of fusion (the point where said thing becomes a liquid) and heat of vaporization (point where thing becomes a gas) and ionization energy (point where an electron is ejected from the atom) you could say so. But it is all relative.
+Strattex I am in a Canadian school, and they never brought plasma up once, though that may be because of different methods of teaching. now im in 10'th grade and showing up my science teacher after teaching myself what the shit was xD
+S W If the electrons are kept in their energized states, than not necessarily, not. In the case of a bolt of lightning, the energy is soon gone and the electrons return to their ground states and thus return to their orbitals.
+唐阿金 Ionization involves stripping electrons from the atoms, thus leaving the formerly neutral atom positively charged whereas reaction involves two or more different atoms bonding by sharing electrons to form new compounds. Look up TIG welding on Youtube. You'll see an electric arc being used to melt steel. The arc is travelling through argon gas. Argon is used because it is easily ionized, thus allowing the electricity to travel between the torch and workpiece and also keeps the nitrogen and oxygen away from the molten metal which would react and form new (unwanted) compounds like iron nitride and iron oxide.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
