All Tables

- Table 1:
Fit results for the RGS spectra extracted from a 1.1
wide strip centred on the core of M 87.
The iron abundance is given with respect to the proto-solar values by Lodders (2003)
and the other abundances with respect to iron. Emission measures (
)
are given in 10
^{64} cm^{-3}.
- Table 2:
Fit results for spatially-resolved RGS spectra. We model the plasma with two thermal components.
Abundances are given with respect to the proto-solar values by Lodders (2003). The emission measures are given in 10
^{64} cm^{-3}.
- Table 3:
Comparison of the observed mass ratios in the core of M 87 for five elements to iron with the predicted mass ratios, assuming that all the elements were produced only by supernovae with 86% of all iron produced by SN Ia. The observed to predicted ratio for oxygen is here by definition one.
