In article the results of experimental studies and modeling of physic-chemical param-eters of plasma of DC current discharges with electrolyte cathode are analyzed at the pres-sure range of (1.01-0.101)·105 Pa for molecular and atomic gases. The data on physical pa-rameters of plasma (electric field strength, cathode voltage drop, gas temperatures) are giv-en. The results of measurements and calculations of active species concentrations, electrons, as well as molecule distributions on vibrational levels and electron energy distribution func-tions are analyzed.
