We present comparison of X-ray proxies for the total cluster mass, including the spectral temperature (T X), gas mass measured within r 500 (M g), and the new proxy, Y X , which is a simple product of T X and M g and is related to the total thermal energy of the ICM. We use mock Chandra images constructed for a sample of clusters simulated with the eulerian… CONTINUE READING
