Distribution of the original orbital energy zorig for the three samples of observable comets we used. The top plot shows the cumulative distributions, and the bottom plot shows the repartition functions. All numbers are normalized to the total number of comets in each sample. The legend in the top left corner indicates the color-coding we used, the number of comets, and the number of hyperbolic comets in each sample.
