Abstract : In order to stabilize the arc channel in plasmotrons one may use either water or other liquids, or even various gases (hydrogen, nitrogen, argon, atmospheric air and the like). If electric-arc plasmotrons are used in practice, in technical or physical investigations, the problem of determining such plasma parameters as composition, temperature, velocity, etc., is of particularly great importance. The solution of such problems is linked with several serious difficulties of both methodical and technical nature. (Author)
