Plasma is the fourth state of matter. We normally think of three states of matter: solid, liquid and gas. For a common element, water, these three states are ice, water and steam. This video explains the physics of plasma and how the plasma arc cuts the metal workpiece by melting it, and blowing away the molten metal.
