Fig. 3


Decreasing effective sweep-up cross section as a function of the parameter x for H = 10. The open circles represent simulation data, and the dashed line corresponds to the best-fitting function Eq. (25). Above x > xcutoff, the simulations show that particles no longer impact the proto-planetesimal. In this regime, the best-fitting function overestimates the sweep-up cross section.
