Plasma is not a gas, not a liquid, and not a solid. Plasma may act like a gas, but it is not a gas.
You can create plasma by heating up/ionizing molecules or atoms, thus creating a CHARGED plasma.
Plasma is also very conductive, not seeing the need for capacitors in this besides storing the charge to start up the machinery to produce the plasma.
Also, capacitors store charge, in an electrostatic field. Two sides of the cap have highly conductive materials, in between is a layer of insulation.
Might not be true for all caps, but that is how they work. Though you are right about the cap/wire argument.
My real question to Bedlam, why are you so intent on shutting down ideas under to guise of being super intelligent? That does nothing but enrage
people because you are seemingly proving them wrong.
Point out where they are wrong, and lead them in the right direction without being an *** about it.
This whole forum would be better off without the type of people who have to be super intelligent about everything, shutting down all ideas. You can
entertain an idea without believing it. I do believe we have had weapons like this, probably been researched for years but never used in battle.
One way I think this could work, is if you can direct highly magnetic non-solid rails in which to guide the plasma where the bolts are created. Since
plasma is highly influenced by magnetics, this seems like it could work. I'm not too sure on the capability or feasibility of my so-called "magnetic
non-solid rails", but that sounds like it would work.
