Table 2

Average value of the αCO conversion factor for each galaxy type, averaged over all snapshots and projections.

Model αCO range

spiral 4.3–4.7
high-z disk 3.9–4.5
SB merger 1.7–2.2

Notes. The indicated range corresponds to the extreme assumptions for the molecular mass definition. αCO is in M (K km s-1 pc2)-1 throughout the manuscript.
