Unformatted text preview: motion where the Sun’s radial position relative to a perfectly circular orbit is given by ρ (t ) = AR sin(κ 0t ) (equation 25.34). Assume that the Sun is currently at the midpoint of its oscillation. Does your result represent a minimum or a maximum estimate of the actual deviation? HINT: You will need to determine which of the components of the Sun’s velocity relative to the LSR is the radial component. How might that be useful? 7. [C&O 25.22 (tweaked)] Some questions on globular clusters around other galaxies, I strongly suggest you review “Specific Frequency of Globular Clusters” (p. 962 – 963) before doing this problem. It is basically just...
