Abstract

A plasma is a mixture of positively and negatively charged particles, ions and electrons, in which the negatively charged electrons are almost completely neutralized by the positively charged ions. We call such a mixture quasi-neutral, i.e., almost neutral. What “almost” means in the present case will now be discussed.
