Caption: Figure 5.

Composition (relative to solar) of the fallback material to pericenter as a function of time (relative to the peak of the mass fallback rate). The panels from left to right show full disruptions of a middle-age Sun, a TAMS Sun, and a TAMS 3M star. Solid lines are hydrodynamic simulation results and dashed lines are analytic results from Gallegos-Garcia et al. (2018).
