Does Molecular Nuclear Fusion! This is why such a jet will even cut through diamond! As it does so, it gives off nuclear radiation.
So it does not abrade the material it is incident on, it melts it! So the newly cut surface will be warm – though the heating is very local, and so diluted.
This tells us why wet stem is so abrasive – even on Ti metal. It produces He, O, nuclear radiation and heat. So it is quite important to know this!
