What Is Plasma?
When matter is continually supplied with energy, its temperature increases and it goes from the solid through the liquid to the gaseous state, cIf the energy input is continued, the atomic shell breaks down and charged particles are created (negatively charged electrons and positively charged ions). This mixture is referred Briefly: Change of state as energy is added: solid =>liquid =>gas=>plasma. In nature, plasma can be found for example in lightning, auroras, flames and the sun. Artificially produced plasma is found in neon tubes, during welding and in flash bulbs, among others..
