    Then let Doppler effect detect sound waves , only . Within the Sun .

    Didn't I just tell you?

    The sun is mostly made of hydrogen, so it's a plasma of hydrogen ions (protons) and electrons.

    Which sound wave? What do you mean by limitations?

    No, not really. The Earth's crust is relatively solid, whereas the interior of the Sun is a hot gas.

    No.

    Yes. A proton can bump into another proton, which hits another proton, and so on. This is how the sound is transmitted through the plasma.

    Hydrogen can never be a plasma . Because it has a form .

    Plasma is an energy that has form , in the extreme high heat of plasma . Cosmic Plasma

    Hydrogen has form or order of energy because it has less energy , or cooled down to the point where both electrons and protons can balance .

    Wrong.
    What?
    I don't even know what you are trying to say here.

    Don't you ever try to look something up before you make bogus statements? Ever...?

    Plasma is just atomic nuclei and electrons at such high temperatures (or in a strong varying electric field) that they do not recombine into atoms. Fluorescent lights are tube a filled with plasma when it is on.
    Any atom can be made into plasma at high enough temperatures.

    The 4 states of matter:
    Solid
    Liquid
    Gas
    Plasma.

    Ho ho. Looks like a rerun of River's famous thread about water. Good luck.

    I explained this.
    Plasma is a gas of hot, dissociated atoms - the electrons have been stripped from the nuclei.

    I would much prefer it if you asked questions about things you don't understand, rather than making pronouncements that might give uneducated people the false impression that you have a clue about what you're talking about when it comes to science.

    Let me count the ways this is wrong.

    Plasma is an energy .... bzzt! Wrong.
    Energy has a form .... bzzt! Wrong.
    "Cosmic plasma" is a thing .... bzzt! Wrong.

    I'm happy to try to answer any questions you might have about where you went wrong.

    "Order of energy"?
    Less energy than ... what?
    electrons and protons "balance" in what way?

    Please don't make meaningless statements. Ask questions when you don't understand the topic.

    To become educated, you have to start by dropping the assumption that you already know better than everybody else. If you go into education assuming you already have all the answers, you have the wrong attitude and you'll never learn anything, other than that education isn't really for you and you might be happier remaining ignorant.
