Photometric power-law parameters H = 7.0 and 2.5n = 12.5. Heliocentric distance 1.6 AU < r. 


Total apparent magnitude m =  H + 5 log10 d + 2.5 n log10 r . 
Comets’ intrinsic brightness is usually expressed in terms of the absolute total magnitude H, which is related to the apparent magnitude m using the relation H = m − 5 log10 d − 2.5 n log10 r. Here d and r are the geocentric and heliocentric distances, respectively, and n is the photometric index, which strongly depends on the strength and nature of a given comet’s activity. For an inactive (asteroidal) body, n = 2. Often n = 4 is assumed for comets, leading to the  conventional absolute magnitude H10. However, comets show great diversity in their activity, and n indexes ranging from 1 to 10 have been reported for different comets (with even more extreme values on occasion).
