Abstract

We show that the radiative cooling properties of the interstellar gas lead naturally to a scaling law for the magnetic field of the form B ∝ n1/2, if the magnetic field is amplified by a vigorous injection of turbulent energy due to expanding HII regions, stellar winds, supernova explosions, stellar jets, etc
