Left panel: ratio of hot mass (measured at the radius of the cold filaments) to total molecular mass. The equal ratio is indicated by a dashed line. The lengths of the cold filaments, rcold, are given in the bottom left-hand corner in kiloparsecs. Right panel: mass deposition rate (measured at rcold) against total molecular mass. The time required for the X-ray cooling to fuel the observed molecular gas mass is indicated by the dashed lines for guidelines at 108 yr and 109 yr. The cooling times measured at rcold are indicated in the top left-hand corner.
Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.
Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.
