Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1922 edition. Excerpt: ...On The Period Ok Capella In discussing the interferometer measures of Capella as a double star an independent and accurate value of the revolution period is very desirable. This can be furnished by a comparison of recent radial velocity observations with similar data obtained at the Lick Observatory1 twenty-two years ago. To determine the period alone a comparatively few observations suffice. The accompanying table gives the data for spectrograms recently obtained at Mt. Wilson. In the successive columns are found: plate number; date and Greenwich mean time of midexposure; measured velocity of the primary reduced to the Sun, obtained from line measurements with a Gartner engine and with the Hartmann spectrocomparator against a sky standard; the mean of these two values; the velocity computed from the Lick Observatory elements; the residual velocity; the measured velocity of the secondary; its computed velocity; and finally, the residuals for the secondary. All plates except y10677 were secured with a three-prism spectrograph having a camera lens of 40-inch focus, attached to the 60-inch reflector. The dispersion at Hy is 5A per mm. y 10677 was secured with a one-prism spectrograph and above mentioned camera lens in which the dispersion of the center of the region used (H8) is 12 A per mm. The velocities derived from this plate are not used in the discussion that follows. Velocity of Primary Measured Date G. M. T. Gaert. Hart. Mean Comp.
