# Solution: A popular material to make a plasma out of is deuterium, a hydrogen isotope with one proton and one neutron. What would the temperature of a deuterium plasma be if the rms speed of the deutrium was 10% the speed of light? Note the mass of deuterium is 3.34x10-27 kg, and the speed of light is 3x108 m/s.
