- Make a plot of characteristic age against . Do you see a
correlation? What is the physical significance of what you see?
- Evaluate the stand off distance for the bow shock around PSR B2224+64
assuming . What telescope would you use to resolve it?
- Why is it difficult to measure timing proper motions for pulsars whose
ecliptic latitude is zero? At what 2 times of year would you make
interferometric observations to measure the parallax of a radio source with
RA = 00:00, DEC 00:00
- Calculate the transverse velocities for pulsars that have distances of
100, 500, 1000, 5000, 10000, 50000 parsecs, assuming a proper motion of 10
