Here a is usually taken as ~ .5 (though relatively sensitive and a
somewhat unknown parameter with RF turbulence present), n here is taken
as ~ 4 to fit the classica. ambipolar potential picture, R is the

II) The normalization of N and *jst to the most recent 2XIIB
data is done for this treatment by Correll in Ref. 3. The change in
63 at rp/a. -2 from the earlier memol is relatively slight
[i.e. a coefficient of -1.3 for Eq. (1) (with a~1/2) instead of the
1.5 used here]. However, the substantial reduction implied in both
63 and particularly A2 for other values of (r/a.) scaling is
perhaps best i'lustrated by Fig. 1. This figure shows the consequences
of using the original analytic scaling of A ~independent of a./rp
