Components of momenta in the radial direction of (a) newly unbound material from the companion (material that was not unbound the previous snapshot) and (b) the total unbound mass from the companion, and bound mass in the companion, and the sum of these two values. Values are shown as a fraction of the total incident momentum calculated for the cross-section of shell material that impacts the companion. The example shown is for a \(3 M_{\odot }\) primary and an orbital separation of \(6 R_{\odot }\).
