4 states of matter question
I know all elements can become a solid, liquid, or gas, but can all the elements become plasma too?

Like can you have solid gold, liquid gold, gaseous gold, and plasma gold?

Or, solid iron, liquid iron, gaseous iron, and plasma iron?

Or, solid neon, liquid neon, gaseous neon, and plasma neon?

etc
etc
etc

Yes, it would seem so.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: 4 states of matter question
...so what would gold plasma look like?

What about tungsten plasma... or bromine plasma.

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

RE: 4 states of matter question
Plasma of different elements would only differ in coloration. Also, there are more than 4 states of matter. IIRC, the number of discovered states of matter is almost 10.

The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?
