Jet speeds in FRI and FRII radio sources

Abstract:

Analytical relations between the mean jet speed and the mean jet flux asymmetry and between their variances are derived in the context of a unified scheme. The mean jet speeds of classical double radio sources axe estimated by using the asymmetry of jet-counter-Jet flux densities taken from the 3CRR and B2 samples. For FRI radio sources the mean jet speed is similar to 0.54 +/- 0.03c, while for FRII low-redshift radio galaxies and intermediate-redshift quasars the values found are similar to ...
