An oxyacetylene flame -- due to its high temperature -- can cause
nearby air molecules to ionize. Does this ionization cause electrical
disturbances that can be heard on an AM radio? If my neighbor is using
an oxyacetylene torch will I hear the electric noise on my AM radio?
Can nearby analog televisions also experience visual disturbances from
the ionization caused by the oxyacetylene flame?
