Homework Help: Quadrupole mass moment

  1. May 8, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    In Shapiro's and Teukolsy Black holes white Dawrfs and neutron stars there is an expression for quadrupole mass moment(chapter 16, section 16.3) given below.My questions is

    1) if i calculate the quadrupole moment what does it tell me for the GW or it's amplitude?
    2) Where can i find neutron star's data (period or velocities..) in reference? so i can solve the below equation.

    From former calculations i have data for radius and masses of neutron stars based on a specific model for EOS.

    2. Relevant equations

    M,R,T,v are the characteristic mass, size,time scale, velocity of the source
