On the visible shape of the cold plasma jets in the solar chromosphere
Lines of equal optical thickness are calculated for cold plasma jets propagating in the simplest magnetic configuration. The paraxial approximation is used in the case of jets directed along the axis of a magnetic dipole. The results explain the apparently convergent as well as divergent shapes of the jets in a divergent magnetic configuration.
