    Cooling flow Cooling flow Jump to navigation Jump to search A cooling flow occurs according to the theory that the intracluster medium ICM in the centres of galaxy clusters should be rapidly cooling at the rate of tens to thousands of solar masses per year This should happen as the ICM a plasma is quickly losing its energy by the emission of X rays. How an engine cooling system works How a Car Works A water cooled cooling system The extra pressure is limited by the radiator cap, which has a pressure valve in it Excessive pressure opens the valve, and coolant flows out through an overflow pipe In a cooling system of this type there is a continual slight loss of coolant if the engine runs very hot. Cooling Flows in Clusters of Galaxies A.C Fabian The domain of cooling flows in galaxy formation occurs above the line where t cool shown as the dotted line zero metal abundance and the solid curve . solar abundance The mass scale shown is for self gravitating gas clouds, but reduces by a factor of at least in a universe dominated by cold dark master. Cooling Flows in Clusters of Galaxies ResearchGate If cooling flows terminate at . keV in clusters, the associated cooling rates are higher, and have a typical value of a few to a few tens of hbox rm M _ odot rm , yr , . The Impact of Cooling Flows in Clusters of Galaxies I discuss the impact of cooling flows on the observable X ray properties of clusters of galaxies I show that accounting for the effects of cooling flows and subcluster merger events leads to consistent determinations of the distribution of gravitating matter in clusters from X Cooling Flows in Clusters and Galaxies by A.C Fabian The cooling time of the gas decreases rapidly towards the centre of the cluster or galaxy and is less than a Hubble time with It was later realized that the central gas density in some clusters, and in elliptical galaxies, is so high that radiative cooling is a significant energy loss.
