Part I: Which galaxy field of the ones you looked at do you predict is the farthest away? ____________________________ Which do you predict is moving away with the highest velocity? _____________________________ Calcuate the values for distance and velocity using the spreadsheet, then graph the Hubble relationship. Insert your distance velocity plot for your galaxies (or your group’s galaxies) here: From your graph the value of the Hubble parameter is____________________(be sure to include appropriate units) Explain whether you think this is a reasonable value and why you think as you do. From your graph what would be the velocity of a galaxy 800 Mpc away?
