CI group This group, named after the Ivuna meteorite, are considered the least altered of all carbonaceous chondrites. They typically contain a high proportion of water (up to 20%), and organic matter in the form of amino acids and PAHs.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PAH This article is about the gene named PAH. For the chemical compound, see polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon.
This is a poor redirect. It seems to imply that PAHs the gene exists in carbonaceous chondrites rather than the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon. If the gene does exist - wow - please clarify. Thanks
What are the range of densities exhibited by these meteorites? The link to Olivene tells me about 3.5, but the other components would change that (reduce it I assume). Thanks. -84user (talk) 15:18, 19 June 2008 (UTC) I found this table of densities for ordinary chondrites and it shows:
Meteorite type Grain density Bulk density Average porosity H 3.84 3.4 11.5% L 3.75 3.34 10.8% LL 3.56 3.19 10.4%
