Following on from a query concerning quasar mass, what fraction of matter is ejected compared to matter that is lost to the BH?

Is there a graph that describes the fractions of the mass of quasars which contribute to disk radiation, plume radiation and black-hollowed? (sorry I can't think of a word because accretion and accretion disk is confusing)

  • $\begingroup$ I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be a highly nonlinear relation which depends on initial mass, elapsed time, and so on. $\endgroup$ – Carl Witthoft Jul 6 '18 at 15:00
