8. The Hubble classification of galaxies. ~ .. 6 Some characteristics of the different types of galaxies in the Hubble classification. I M represents the fraction of the total mass in the gaseous form. 3 regions to the central regions. Such objects are relatively massive (2: 10 12 M d, (there are however exceptions like dwarf ellipticals). 6). 9b). Our own Galaxy is typical of this group. 1. These galaxies are relatively more luminous and bluer than the elliptical galaxies (in comparison with their masses).

The interstellar medium contains magnetic fields of 10- 5 to 10- 6 G and is traversed by hydromagnetic waves which govern the physics of this medium. The interstellar medium, although its density is very low, appears to be a very complex medium. A tremendous effort is made by astronomers and astrophysicists to understand this complexity. This shows how many different fields of physics have to be used in astrophysics to understand the Universe: atomic physics, solid state physics, plasma physics, inorganic and organic chemistry, all of them are important in the study of such a complex medium.

This well known diagram, now called the HR diagram from the initials of its authors, constitutes one of the most powerful tools of modern astrophysics. 5). Some others, on the top right, luminous and 'cold' (3000 to 4000 K) are the red giants, while the few hot ones (T > 104 K) not very luminous, down left, are the white dwarfs. From the well known 'blackbody' relation, one can easily deduce that the stellar radius increases from the lower left towards the top right, according to the relation: L= 4nR2(J'T!
