Forces along a field line in the jet. Panel (a) shows the poloidal matter flux density ρ| v p | as a background overplotted with poloidal magnetic field lines. The vectors show the total force f tot along a representative field line originating from the disk at r=1.24. Panel (b) plots the angular velocity Ω as the background. The vectors show the sum of the gravitational + centrifugal forces f G + C along the representative field line. Panel (c) shows the poloidal current I p as the background. The vectors show the total magnetic force f M along the representative field line.
