Length Plasma Parameters (plasmapy.formulary.lengths)

Functions to calculate fundamental plasma length parameters.

Functions

 Debye_length(T_e, n_e) Calculate the characteristic decay length for electric fields due to charge screening. gyroradius(B, particle, *[, Vperp, T, ...]) Return the particle gyroradius. inertial_length(n, particle) Calculate a charged particle's inertial length.

Aliases

PlasmaPy provides aliases of the most common plasma functionality for user convenience. Aliases in PlasmaPy are denoted with a trailing underscore (e.g., alias_). For further details, please refer to the contributor guide’s section on aliases.

 cwp_(n, particle) Alias to inertial_length. lambdaD_(T_e, n_e) Alias to Debye_length. rc_(B, particle, *[, Vperp, T, ...]) Alias to gyroradius. rhoc_(B, particle, *[, Vperp, T, ...]) Alias to gyroradius.
