Description:

In this activity students learn that galaxies shine on the basis of their intergrated stellar population, therefore, adding together different stellar spectra should reproduce the spectra of a galaxy. This activity contains an applet which allows one to add spectra of up to four different stars to produce a resultant spectra. To reproduce qualitatively a spectra of a galaxy one can add together and F main sequence star and a K Giant. The spectra are normalized by V-band luminosity.
