Re:NGC 3184
A.10. NGC 3184
NGC 3184 is a spiral galaxy located at D = 11.1 Mpc and
is viewed almost face-on. Its analysis revealed 40 HI holes,
the majority of those being supershells (80%). This could be
attributed to the large distance of this galaxy which only allowed
us to detect holes with diameters larger than 400 pc. We failed
to detect any type 3 holes something which is expected since
the scale height of the disk was found to be 250 pc, significantly
smaller than our spatial resolution. Nevertheless, this is the
largest number of supershells detected in any one galaxy. The
mean kinetic age of the holes is also high (~64 Myr). Note that
hole number 13 is a superposition of two holes.

Re:NGC 3184
NGC 3184 We measured 19 offsets at r = 1.6-3.6 kpc (0.6'-1.4'), and found a
negative correlation between {theta} and {OMEGA}, with large dispersion. Since
CO data from BIMA SONG do not include data from single-dish observations, they
are subject to the missing flux problem. In order to quantify how much flux is
missed in the BIMA observations, we compared its spectra to those from the 45 m
observations (Kuno et al. 2007) in Figure 8. While about 90% of the total flux
was detected in the central 21" region, about 70% was missed if the flux was
averaged at r <= 45".
We do not, however, attribute the ambiguity in the offset to the missing
flux, since spiral arms are thought to be comprised of smaller molecular clouds,
which should be selectively detected in the interferometric observations. Since
the spatial resolution of the CO data (~250 pc) is small enough to resolve
typical molecular arms and offsets, the field of view and/or sensitivity should
be insufficient. As spiral arms can be traced in the H{alpha} to larger radii,
we expect that the {OMEGA}-{theta} distribution will become clearer with smaller
dispersion, if CO data with a larger field of view and higher sensitivity become

Re:NGC 3184
In this galaxy, faint polarized emission is apparent over much of the northern
half of the disk. The lowest brightness of polarized emission occurs near the
receding major axis (PA = 179^deg^, as tabulated in Table 1). Interarm regions
may be enhanced relative to the spiral arms, but deeper observations would be
required for a definitive analysis. Only a single lobe of one double source is
detected in this field, yielding a Galactic foreground RM of +19 +/- 2 rad
m^-2^. The unresolved sources in the field show significant scatter about this

Re:NGC 3184
CO kinematics have been obtained by Nishiyama et al. (2001) for this nearly
face-on galaxy. H{alpha} data show a pretty flat rotation curve that nearly
reaches a flat part within the optical disc.

Re:NGC 3184
NGC 3184.This galaxy has both a large bulge and a round bar. The bar
is not prominent in the K-band image. However the CO distribution
shows the classic response of gas in a barred potential, with trailing
spiral arms emerging from the ends of the bar. The bulge is a little
over half the bar size and is very bright in the near-IR, which may
indicate a large mass concentration in the center of the galaxy.

Re:UGC 05557
Very diffuse radio source; the NVSS flux may be too low.

NGC 3184 is near enough that individual
stars begin to resolve out of the background of
the arms at about B = 22, but the separation of
the stars from the many HII regions will require
the standard identification procedures comparing
H{alpha} and yellow images. The redshift of
NGC 3184 is v_o = 607 km/s.
The arms begin tangent to the rim of a small,
smooth inner disk, within which two faint spiral
dust lanes start at the center and connect with the
beginnings of the two main luminous arms. The
luminous arms branch into several thick fragments
that spread to cover much of the area of
the outer disk. Dust lanes exist throughout the
