Dimensionless parameters (
Module of dimensionless plasma parameters.
These are especially important for determining what regime a plasma is in. (e.g., turbulent, quantum, collisional, etc.).
For example, plasmas at high (much larger than 1) Reynolds numbers are highly turbulent, while turbulence is negligible at low Reynolds numbers.
||The ratio of thermal pressure to magnetic pressure.|
||Compares Fermi energy to thermal kinetic energy to check if quantum effects are important.|
||The Reynolds Number is a dimensionless quantity that is used to predict flow patterns in fluids.|
||The Magnetic Reynolds number is a dimensionless quantity that estimates the relative contributions of advection and induction to magnetic diffusion in a conducting medium.|
