 X/X_{
max
}is the fraction of the maximal thrust possible, obtained from inserting the value of ΞΎ /L_{2} from Table 4 into Figure 5c and following the vertical line. K is calculated from equation (5). The thrust increment X (in newtons) is calculated assuming a swimming speed of 2.4 m/sec, and the X/X_{
req
}represents the thrust transferred from the mother as a fraction of the total thrust required of the calf.
