Beam powers, active lifetimes, and total energies of FRIIb radio galaxies

Abstract:
Multi-frequency radio observations of a powerful classical double radio galaxies can be used to determine the beam power of the jets emanating from the AGN, the total time the source will actively produce jets, and the total energy available to power the jets during their lifetime. Empirical determinations of these quantities are presented for 20 classical double radio galaxies. The model assumptions, trends with redshift, and implications for energy extracted from central engines are discussed.
