Caption

Plasma torch cutting steel. View of steel being cut by a plasma torch (upper left). Plasma torches have a temperature of around 8000 degrees Celsius, which rapidly cuts through steel. They use an electric arc to heat gas in their nozzle, which is then forced out as a stream of hot plasma. Plasma is a high energy state of matter in which a gas' atoms are separated into positive ions and free electrons.
