Theoretical analysis and numerical calculations are carried out of the skin current in a finite‐length cylindrical plasma when a step‐like electric field is applied externally, within the framework of classical theory. The spatial and temporal evolutions of the skin current are numerically calculated for two cases of plasmas with uniform and parabolic density distributions.
