The key properties of plasma that depend on the ion size are: 1) Electric conductivity since it depends on Coulomb scattering of electrons on ions and the rate of it scales as the ion charge squared 2) Radiation properties - for fully ionized plasmas the bremsstralung (braking) radiation due to the Coulomn scattering of electrons on ions strongly grows with ...


Yes. Plasma consists of ionized matter. Which contains cathode rays (electrons) which are indipendant of the matter and positive rays ( nucleii) which depen on the matter ionized. So as plasma is a mixture of both it shows a significant physical difference. Eg: Density, Charge/Mass ratio, Effect due to Electro-magnetic fields
