Fig. 10


The specific angular momentum plotted against mass contained inside ellipsoids of varying radius at a series of time steps of run B. Solid curves represent the specific angular momentum of gas. Dashed curves represent the averaged value considering gas and sinks at the same time. The specific angular momentum of gas is more or less conserved during the collapse, which justifies our simplification, while the sink particles exhibit a loss in angular momentum.
