Normalized tidal torque as a function of the frequency of the perturber ω = (Ω−norb) /norb for various values of the Brunt-Väisälä frequency from weak to strongly stable stratification, i.e., . The tidal torque is computed using the normalized function given by Eq. (71), and we consider the case of a Venus-like planet with the following set of values: norb = 1.991 × 10-7 s-1, Γ1 = 1.4 (perfect gas), H = 15.9 km, θ = π/ 3, α = 0 (westward propagating wave), σ0 = 7.5 × 10-7 s-1 (Leconte et al. 2015), and k = 2π/λ with λ = 1000 km.
