Optical depth simplification. The simplified optical depth is calculated by neglecting the spin temperature of the cloud. The solid and dashed lines represent a spin temperature of 50 K with optical depths of 1 and 2, respectively. The dotted and dash-dotted lines represent a spin temperature of 100 K with optical depths of 1 and 2, respectively.
