Mean radial column density profiles along the Center filament of the Musca cloud. The left and right panels show the mean profile on the west and east sides of the filament axis, respectively. The blue line shows the fit of Plummer-like profile, and red line shows the fit of a pressure-confined hydrostatic cylinder. The colored arrows indicate the radial ranges used in fitting the profiles. The error bars show the standard deviation of 20 individual profiles from which the mean profile is constructed. The vertical dashed line shows the FWHM size of the extinction mapping beam.
