Now we will look at how increasing the plasma current effects our other two performance variables -
stored energy and energy confinement time.
>> Input the same shot numbers 41087, 41152,
and 45599. For questions 2 and 3, plot plasma current on the top plot,
stored energy on the bottom one. Note the value of the stored energy at 4
Question 3: The plasma, which had the largest stored energy AT 4 SECONDS had approximately ______ times more stored energy than
the plasma with the smallest amount of stored energy.
Question 2: As the plasma current is increased in each shot what happens to the stored energy (at 4 seconds)?
a) The stored energy doesn't change.
b) The stored energy increases.
c) The stored energy decreases.
