Fig. 2


The internal pressure-density profile of an irradiated 1.8 MJ planet (solid line). The dashed line represents the best-fit polytropic equation of state. The pressure-density range covered in the inner part of the body (95% in mass) is represented by the thicker part of the solid curve, which is well modeled by a polytropic EOS. As the thin part of the P − ρ curve represents only 5% in mass of the body it is disregarded by the fit.
