Table 1 The forward force (in N) on a neonate, as a function of lateral distance from the mother

From: The hydrodynamics of dolphin drafting

ε η/L1 Ordinate Force = Ordinate*2.54 Percentage of the maximal force possible for ε = 0
0 0.25 4.16 10.6 100%
10 0.36 2.60 6.6 62%
20 0.46 1.78 4.52 43%
30 0.57 1.23 3.3 31%
  1. The value of ε gives the distance beyond the minimum separation, in cm. The value is beyond the scope of Figure 5a.
