  • Do you mean the gas or the tv that uses the gas to produce the color of the picture?
  • It can be the liquid component of blood, or it can be a state of matter in a state resembling gaseous.
  • Often called the fourth state of matter, solid...liquid...gas...plasma. If you heat up a substance to high temperatures, the outer layer electrons are so energetic that the atom can no longer hold them, you end up with an atom and electron soup. Often the electrons are stripped away and the positive ions left over can be used as mass to accelerate away using magnetic/electric force. This is a very basic description of ION thrusters used in satellites and space vehicles.
  • In physics and chemistry, a plasma is typically an ionized gas. Plasma is considered to be a distinct state of matter, apart from gases, because of its unique properties. Ionized refers to presence of one or more free electrons, which are not bound to an atom or molecule. The free electric charges make the plasma electrically conductive so that it responds strongly to electromagnetic fields. It is also the part of uncoagulated blood after the solids (cells and platelets) are removed as opposed to serum, which is the liquid part of blood that has been allowed to coagulate, hence there is no fibrin in serum.
  • Your question is somewhat vague because there are many kinds of plasma: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plasma But in any case, just click on any of the Plasmas listed there.
  • "plasma (plural plasmas) 1. (physics) A state of matter consisting of fully ionized gas 2. A clear component of blood or lymph containing fibrin 3. Blood plasma, free of suspended cells, used in transfusions " Source and further information: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/plasma "plasma 1712, "form, shape" (earlier plasm, 1620), from L.L. plasma, from Gk. plasma "something molded or created," from plassein "to mold," originally "to spread thin," from PIE *plath-yein, from base *pele- "flat, to spread" (see plane (1)). Sense of "liquid part of blood" is from 1845; that of "ionized gas" is 1928."
