Multichord measurements were made of the density and temperature of the ions in a plasma pinched by a toroidal magnetic field in the Tuman-2A installation. The diffusion coefficient was determined from the time dependence of the concentration. It was observed that when the plasma is pinched at a rate close to the diffusion rate, the ion heating is determined by the increase of the plasma density.
