Problem 30PE

The Crab Nebula (see Figure 7.41) pulsar is the remnant of a supernova that occurred in A.D. 1054. Using data from Table 7.3, calculate the approximate factor by which the power output of this astronomical object has declined since its explosion.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 30PE

   Step 1 of 2

We need to calculate the factor by which the out power of the supernova has changed after the explosion. After the explosion the supernova will eventually become a Crab Nebula pulsar which is a young neutron star.

We are given the power outputs of both the cosmological systems and we need to compare the values to compute the factor.

Given data:

Output power of supernova

Output power of crab nebula pulsar

Step 2 of 2
