A Study of the Soft X-Ray Emission Lines in NGC 4151. II. The Internal Plasma Properties

Published: 14 October 2021

Abstract: We showcase a tool suite that enables the fitting of soft X-ray spectra in active galactic nuclei (AGNs), without the need for specialist software, allowing access to AGN physics for school students. While these standardized Python tools were useful for measuring velocities, they offered significantly fewer capabilities for radiative recombination continua, and R and G ratios, utilized to obtain the internal plasma properties within the outflowing wind seen in NGC 4151. Although further work is required for these tools to be used in outreach projects, we present findings of the plasma temperature and density in NGC 4151 spanning a 15 yr period.
