Galaxy Mass - How much is stellar/gas?

  1. Oct 29, 2015 #1
    Hi, ignoring Dark Matter, I was wondering on average what portion of a galaxies mass is stars and what portion is gas.

    I am guessing it fluctuates with redshift so for arguments sake lets say we are only talking about galaxies at z~0.5
