SNR RX J1713.7–3946

SNR RX J1713.7–3946 is a shell-type supernova remnant located at the constellation of Scorpius.

Shell-type remnants, as the name suggests, emit most of their radiation from a shell of shocked material. We view this as the bright ring of the picture. E0102-72 is the shell-type supernova remnant of the following picture. It is located in the Small Magellanic Cloud, in Tucana and Hydrus constellations.

From the spectrum, we are going to calculate the percentage amount of the chemists elements that made up this SNR. To achieve this, open ImageJ and run it in browser. Then, select with polygon selections the total area and every peak's area.

Now, calculate the percentage of every peak dividing its area (pixels2) respect the total area (pixels2) and multiplying it by a hundred.

We have obtained our own supernova remnant chemical composition data. Now, we have to compare it with other scientists' data.

Unfortunately, if we look for chemical composition analysis of this SNR on Google Scholar, we found that there are no articles covering data of SNR RX J1713.7–3946 chemical composition.
