How does plasma make a campfire flame orange ?


How does plasma make a campfire flame orange ? 

Step 1

Plasma is an ionized gas which has charged ions (positive ions, free electrons); otherwise described as gas with charged soot particles.

Step 2

On combustion, the gases get ionized and thus the electrons move to excited energy state.  But, the electron will not remain in excited state a...
