Andrzej Maslonka March 31,2009 HW Cen X-3 and Gen 1) My estimate of the period of variability of this x-ray source is 0.275 2) My estimate compared with the "exact" is slightly higher than the exact. The difference is 0.275 -0.207=0.068. I was surprised by how little the difference was. The power spectrum provides a more accurate answer because it measures the spike with the most power. 3) My estimate of the period of variability of this x-ray source is 0.400

Unformatted text preview: 4) My estimate compared with the "exact" is slightly higher than the exact. The difference is 0.400-0.340=0.060. No I was not surprised because my estimation from this x-ray source is compared to the other x-ray source it was closer. 5) The variation in the period of the "pulse" vary by the Can X-3 pulsating almost twice as much as the Gen. 1- Cen X has a larger orbit radius. 2- Cen X is a younger star, therefore brighter. 3-...
