In this paper study the coulomb collisions among plasma particles, using Maxwellian Distribution to reach of collisions time equations for electron, ion and transfer energy between the electron and ion inside plasma by indication of Coulomb Logarithm (Ln Λ). The coulomb collisions time calculations are necessary for the fusion reactors because Collisions between ions and electrons give rise to an electrical resistance which leads to ohmic heating of the plasma. Because of the collisions the particles and energy transfer leading to losses in the plasma. In order to control on the fusion reaction which happen inside the ionization medium (the plasma) must be control the temperatures to reach the max. possible period of energy confinement.
