3 What is a galaxy? Large assembly of stars, gas and dust, held together by gravity Sizes: Largest: ~1 Trillion stars (or more) Smallest: ~10 Million stars Milky Way & Andromeda: ~200 Billion stars [For comparison, Nabisco has baked ~350 Billion Oreos since 1913, or ~1 for each star ]
4 Spiral galaxies The Milky Way & Andromeda are examples of spiral galaxies. All spirals share a common structure: Thin disk of stars, gas, and dust. Thick spheroid of stars with little gas or dust. All spirals have disks Spheroids vary greatly in size.
5 Spheroid structure Bulge: where inner spheroid & disk merge Many RR Lyrae stars A little gas & dust Halo: sparse outer spheroid Old metal-poor stars Globular clusters RR Lyrae Stars
6 Sombrero galaxy (M104) Halo Bulge Disk
7 Disk structure Thick disk of stars (~1000 pc thick) Open clusters & loose associations of stars Mix of young & old stars Cepheid stars in young clusters Thin disk of gas & dust (~100 pc thick) Mostly cold atomic hydrogen gas Dusty giant molecular hydrogen (H 2 ) clouds

10 Rotation of the disk Measure using the Doppler Effect Stars: Doppler shifts of stellar absorption lines Ionized gas: emission lines from HII regions Atomic hydrogen (HI) gas: Cold H clouds emit a radio emission line at a wavelength of 21-cm Can trace nearly the entire disk beyond where the stars have begun to thin out.

12 Typical spiral galaxy rotation curve Ro otation Speed ( km/sec ) Solid-Body Rotation Differential Rotation Radius from the Center (kpc) 25
13 Measuring masses of galaxies Star or gas cloud is held in its orbit by the gravity of the mass interior to its orbit. Newton s gravity: 2 VrotR M ( R ) G M(R) = mass interior to radius R V rot = rotation speed
14 Example: Milky Way Sun: R=8 kpc,v rot =220 km/sec Gives: M = M sun inside R=8 kpc Gas Cloud in outer disk: R=16 kpc, V rot =275 km/sec Gives: M= M sun inside R=16 kpc A way to measure the masses of galaxies.
15 Hubble classification of galaxies All bright galaxies fall into one of three broad classes according to their shape: Spiral Galaxies (~75%) Elliptical Galaxies (20%) Irregular Galaxies (5%) Basic classification system developed by Hubble (1936).
17 Type E: ellipticals Show little internal structure: Elliptical in shape No disks, spiral arms, or dust lanes Brightest stars are red Classified by the degree of apparent flatness: E0 is circular E7 is flattest t (3:1 aspect ratio)
18 Elliptical galaxies E1 E5
19 Type S: ordinary spirals Classified by relative strength of the central bulge & tightness of the spiral arms Types: Sa, Sb, and Sc Sa: strong bulge & tight, indistinct arms Sb: intermediate type Sc: small bulge & loose, well-defined arms The Milky Way is probably bl type Sb.
20 Ordinary spirals Sa Sb Sc
21 Type SB: barred spirals Parallel group to the ordinary spirals: About as many barred as ordinary spirals. Feature a strong central stellar bar: Bar rotates as a unit (solid body rotation) Spiral arms emerge from the ends of the bar Same subclasses: SBa, SBb, and SBc
22 Barred Spirals SBa SBb SBc
23 Type I: irregulars Show an irregular, often chaotic structure. Little evidence of systematic rotation. Catch-all all class: Proposed systematic subclasses, but many irregulars defy classification. Significant dwarf irregular population, classified as di
24 Irregular galaxies Large Magellanic Cloud Small Magellanic Cloud
25 Spiral galaxies Properties: Mass: M sun Diameter: 5 50 kpc Luminosity: L sun Structure & dynamics: Disk + spheroid Supported by relatively rapid rotation, but spheroid is puffed up by random motions.
26 Elliptical galaxies Properties: Mass: M sun Diameter: kpc Luminosity: L sun Structure & dynamics: Spheroid of old stars with little gas or dust Supported by random motions of stars with some very slow rotation
27 Irregular galaxies Properties: Mass: M sun Diameter: 1 10 kpc Luminosity: 10 6 few x 10 9 L sun Structure & dynamics: Chaotic structure, lots of young blue stars Moderate rotation in Irregulars, but very chaotic motions as well.
28 Relative stellar & gas content Spirals: Range is ~10-20% gas On-going star formation in the disks Mix of Pop I and Pop II stars Ellipticals: Very little or no gas or dust Star formation ended billions of years ago See only old Pop II stars
29 Relative stellar & gas content Irregulars: Can range up to 90% gas content Often a great deal of on-going star formation Dominated by young Pop I stars Dwarf Irregulars: Very metal poor (<1% solar) Forming stars for the first time only now.
30 Dwarf galaxies Low-luminosity Ellipticals & Irregulars. Significant number of dwarfs There are no (convincing) Dwarf Spirals. Possibilities: Small versions of their larger cousins Different population of objects with superficial similarities to larger E s and Irr s
32 Groups & clusters of galaxies Most galaxies are found in groups and clusters Basic properties: Membership: Pairs to 1000 s of galaxies. Sizes: 1 10 Mpc across Mix of bright galaxies and dwarfs About 3000 clusters have been cataloged to date.
33 The Local Group Group of 30-odd galaxies centered on the Milky Way and Andromeda: Size: ~1 Mpc 4Spirals 15 Ellipticals (3 small Es & 12 des) 13 Irregulars of various sizes Total Mass ~5x10 12 M sun
34 The Local Group
35 Virgo Cluster Nearest sizable cluster to the Local Group Relatively loose cluster, centered on two bright Ellipticals: M87 and M84 Properties: Distances: ~18 Mpc Size: ~ 2 Mpc 2500 galaxies (including many dwarfs) Mass: ~10 14 M sun
36 Virgo Cluster
37 Rich clusters Contain 1000 s of galaxies: Extend for 5 10 Mpc Masses up to ~10 15 M sun One or more giant Elliptical Galaxies at center. Ellipticals found near the center. Spirals found at the outskirts % of the mass is hot ( K) intracluster gas seen in X-ray emission.
39 Distant rich cluster (HST Image)
40 Superclusters Clusters of Clusters Properties: Sizes up to 50 Mpc Masses of to M sun 90 95% empty space (voids) Long and filamentary in shape
41 Local supercluster Roughly centered on the Virgo Cluster Local Group is on the outskirts Properties: Size: ~20 Mpc Mass: ~10 15 M sun only ~5% of the volume occupied by galaxies
43 Elbow room Galaxies are large compared to the distances between them: Most galaxies are separated by only ~20 times their diameters. By comparison, most stars are separated by ~10 7 times their diameters. Galaxies are likely to encounter other galaxies a few times over their histories.
44 Tidal interactions Galaxies interact via Gravitation. Because of their large sizes, two galaxies passing near each other raise mutual tides. These tides distort the shapes of the galaxies Dramatic effects without direct collision. Most peculiar galaxies are interacting pairs.
45 Raising tides Far side Near side Tidal stretching along the encounter line. Near side feels stronger gravitational pull from the companion Far side feels weaker gravitational pull and lags behind the near side.
46 Whirlpool Galaxy (M51)
47 Mergers If two colliding galaxies can dissipate enough orbital energy: Wreckage merges into a single galaxy. Gas clouds collide and form new stars. Some portion of the old stars are ejected from the system (carry off orbital energy). Mergers may play a pivotal role in the formation of galaxies
49 Galactic nuclei Galaxy Nucleus: Exact center of a galaxy and it immediate surroundings. If a spiral galaxy, it is the center of rotation. Normal Galaxies: Dense central star cluster A composite stellar absorption-line spectrum May also show weak nebular emission lines.
50 Active Galactic Nuclei About 1% of all galaxies have active nuclei. Bright, compact nucleus: Sometimes brighter than the entire galaxy. Strong, broad emission lines from hot, dense, highly excited gas. Rapidly Variable: Small: only a few light days across.
51 Bright Active Galaxy (HST Image)
52 Discovery of Active Galaxies 1943: Seyfert Galaxies Carl Seyfert identified 6 galaxies with strong, broad emission lines coming from a compact, bright galaxy nucleus. 1950s: Radio Galaxies First radio telescopes found faint galaxies at the location of intense radio emission. Also show broad emission-lines in their spectra.
53 The riddle of the quasars 1960s: Radio astronomers found intense, point- like sources of radio emission. Photographs revealed slightly fuzzy or quasi-stellar objects at these locations. The spectra were bizarre and full of broad, unrecognized emission lines. Quasars: Quasi-Stellar Radio Sources
54 The riddle of quasars solved 1963: Maarten Schmidt (Caltech) Recognized that the lines in Quasars were normal Hydrogen lines with extreme redshifts Luminous objects located very far away. The fuzz is the host galaxy lost in the glare of an intense active nucleus.
55 Cosmic beacons Quasars are the most luminous objects in the Universe: Brightest are ~10 14 L sun Brightest Quasars: Among the most distant objects in the Universe Most distant is ~4 Gpc Probes of the Universe on very large scales.
56 Distant Quasar (HST Image)
57 What powers AGNs? Properties that need to be explained: Powerful: Luminosities of Billions or Trillions of suns. Emit everything from Radio to Gamma rays Compact: Visible ibl light varies on day timescales X-rays can vary on a few hour timescales
58 The Black Hole paradigm A plausible energy source: accretion of matter onto a supermassive Black Hole. Supermassive = M sun Schwarzschild Radii: ~ AU Matter releases gravitational energy as it falls in. Infalling gas settles into an accretion disk. The hot inner parts of the disk shine brightly.
60 The central engine Black Hole accretion can be very efficient: up to ~10% maximum efficiency ~1 M sun /year of matter needed for bright AGNs. Get fuel from surrounding gas and stars. Rapidly Spinning Black Hole: Acts like a particle accelerator Leads to the jets seen in radio-loud AGNs.
61 Do most galaxies harbor a central black hole? Nearly all spirals show some level of activity if perhaps only very faintly. Dynamical evidence for massive black holes in many nearby inactive galaxies. Milky Way has a M sun Black hole, but lacks strong activity Recent evidence that almost all galaxies have large black holes in the center
62 Summary: Three basic types of galaxies: Spirals Disk and spheroid component Rotation of disk allows measurement of galaxy mass Ellipticals Irregulars Differ in terms of Relative gas content t Star formation History Internal motions Galaxies tend to group into Clusters Groups, clusters, and superclusters Galaxies can collide and merge Some galaxies have active nuclei Powered by large black holes in the center
