Constraints Imposed by the Square-Root Spin-down Law on Coronal Wind Parameters

Graph depicting Coronal Wind Mass-Loss Rate

We derive an explicit expression for the coronal wind mass-loss rate. This result is based on a currently used generalized torque formula (per unit rotational velocity) expressed as a product of known monomials, separately for the magnetic field and the mass-loss rate.
