Notes 10/12 Extrasolar Planets (detection)  Indirect methods: o Doppler wobble technique—  Two rules of Doppler shifting:  1. (a) Objects moving toward you appear “blueshifted” (shorter waves) (b) Objects moving away appear “redshifted” (longer waves)  2. The amount of shift is proportional to radial velocity o Radial meaning along line of sight; parallel to radius What do we deduce? 1. Amplitude of wobble (V orbitor star/planet) if system is edge-on 2. How long it takes to repeat itself (period) Perio d What we Tim measur e Vradial The closer you are orbiting to the sun, the faster you go Period equation: 2Πr orbit(V orbit (T) Determines how far away a star is and how massive Almost all exoplanets found using Doppler wobble technique are very massive (Jupiter or larger) and VERY close to parent star (possible 5 day orbit)  Opposite of our planetary hypothesis  Called hot Jupiters  Do we throw out our theory? o NO o Our sample is biased/not representative o Biased in favor of finding only massive planets  Low mass planets do not make wobble strong enough to detect  In favor of stars very close to parent star because that have short orbital periods; we have only been looking for a short time SO we cannot see planets farther out (must follow for 20-30 years)
