Reorientation distribution (circles) during tumbles (obtained on about 1200 tumble events, from Berg and Brown [7]) and best fit (solid line) obtained from Eq.2 corresponding to Dr = 3.5 rad2/s. The tumble times are described by a discrete exponential distribution (mean value tumble> = 0.14 s, time step Δτtumble = 0.1 s, same conditions as in [7]). The distribution of reorientation is well described by a rotational diffusion process.
