Atmospheric-plasma generation inside a glass tube is influenced by gas stream behavior as described by the Reynolds number (). In experiments with He, Ne, and Ar, the plasma column length increases with an increase in the gas flow rate under laminar flow characterized by  < 2000. The length of the plasma column decreases as the flow rate increases in the transition region of 2000 <  < 4000. For a turbulent flow beyond  > 4000, the length of the plasma column is short in front of the electrode, eventually leading to a shutdown.
