Title: Revealing the dynamics of Galaxy Clusters with X-rays

Abstract:
From X-ray observations to Galaxy Clusters, we can calculate the total mass of the cluster by assuming hydrostatic equilibrium. I will present a new method that allows us to calculate the total mass of the cluster. With this new method, we no longer need to make such assumption about the dynamical state of the cluster.
