  1. Time-averaged relative kinetic energy of various flow contributions (C) obeying different symmetries, which are represented by three-letter abbreviations. The first two letters indicate the equatorial symmetry: equatorial symmetric (ES) or equatorial antisymmetric (EA). The last letter indicates the axisymmetry: axisymmetric (A) or non-axisymmetric (N). The first two rows are magnetic runs (Fig. 2), and the other four are hydro runs (Fig. 4). Parameters: Ra=4×107
