NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 1997MNRAS.288L...1H The jets in 3C 296 M. J. Hardcastle, P. Alexander, G. G. Pooley and J. M. Riley Accepted 1997 February 24. Received 1997 February 19; in original form 1996 December 11 ABSTRACT We present observations made with the VLA at 1.5 and 8.4 GHz of the nearby FRI radio galaxy 3C 296. The most recent models of FRI radio galaxies suggest that substantial deceleration must take place in their jets, with strongly relativistic velocities on parsec scales giving way to at most mildly relativistic velocities on scales of tens of kiloparsecs. The region over which this deceleration takes place is therefore of considerable interest. By considering the side-to-side asymmetries of the jets of 3C 296, we constrain the region of strong deceleration in the source. our observations show evidence that the jets have slow edges surrounding faster central spines. We discuss the implications of our observations for models of the magnetic field structure in these objects. Key words: galaxies: active - galaxies: individual: 3C 296 - galaxies: jets - radio continuum: galaxies.
