The cumulated mass as a function of the distance from the cluster centre rc. The thick black curve is the observed cumulated mass function as obtained from adding up all the individual masses within a distance rc. The (thinner) red curve is the relation from Eq. (3) between the tidal radius and the tidal mass in the gravitational field of the Galaxy near the position of the Sun.
