Homework 9 : The Hubble Law

(Due Thursday, Dec 1, 2005)

This homework is about the Hubble law that relates the observed redshifts of galaxies to their distances. You'll be working with a real galaxy spectrum, which is plotted in the figure below. This is the spectrum of a galaxy in the Hubble Deep Field and was taken with a spectrograph on one of the Keck 10 meter telescopes on Mauna Kea.
