Chromospherically active stars. XXVI. The double-lined late-type binary HD 19485 = WZ Arietis.


Abstract (from CDS):

We have used spectroscopic observations to determine the orbital elements and some basic properties of the double-lined spectroscopic binary HD 19485 = WZ Ari. The orbital period is 6.247854 days, and the orbit is circular. The G5 V primary and K0 V secondary are chromospherically active. One star or possibly both are synchronously rotating. Based on the Hipparcos parallax and the magnitude differences derived in this work, we find that both components are approximately 1 mag above the zero-age main sequence, a result that is inconsistent with the assumption that the components are coeval. We discuss some possible solutions to this anomaly, but none of them satisfactorily resolve the problem.
