FIGURE 23.6.1.- Mass distribution within the groups of secondary bodies as a function of their normalized distances [Greek letter] delta= r/rion. The figure shows that within a group characterized by a large value of mathematical symbol
, the mass decreases outward. For s value of mathematical symbol
which is small, the mass decreases inward. (From Alfvén, 1962.)
