Energy gain with respect to Esat predicted by our simplified model ΔEmax compared to the maximum energy gain found in each simulation. The latter are by a factor of  ~0.45 (slope of the gray dotted lines) lower than the estimates, which is most likely due to oversimplification of the model. Phase-space sampling due to the limited particle number does not play a significant role as can be seen from the gray circles thAT mark the runs with 10 times lower resolution. Left: the estimated energy gain as obtained from our model. Right: the energy gain from our model corrected for an additional dependency on the angular momentum of the satellite. See text for a discussion.
