Table 3 The peak side 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*10.16 Percentage of the maximal force possible for ε = 0
0 0.25 12.1 30.7 100%
10 0.36 7.50 19.1 62%
20 0.46 5.20 13.2 43%
30 0.57 3.61 9.17 30%
  1. The value of ε gives the distance beyond the minimum separation, in cm. The value is beyond the scope of Figure 5b.
