New precision orbits of bright doublelined spectroscopic binaries. IX. HD 54371, HR 2692, and 16 ursa majoris
Abstract
With extensive sets of new radial velocities we have determined orbital elements for three previously known spectroscopic binaries, HD 54371, HR 2692, and 16 UMa. All three systems have had the lines of their secondaries detected for the first time. The orbital periods range from 16.24 to 113.23 days, and the three binaries have modestly or moderately eccentric orbits. The secondary to primary mass ratios range from 0.50 to 0.64. The orbital dimensions (a{sub 1} sin i and a{sub 2} sin i) and minimum masses (m{sub 1} sin{sup 3} i and m{sub 2} sin{sup 3} i) of the binary components all have accuracies of ⩽1%. With our spectroscopic results and the Hipparcos data, we also have determined astrometric orbits for two of the three systems, HR 2692 and 16 UMa. The primaries of HD 54371 and 16 UMa are solartype stars, and their secondaries are likely K or M dwarfs. The primary of HR 2692 is a latetype subgiant and its secondary is a G or K dwarf. The primaries of both HR 2692 and 16 UMa may be pseudosynchronously rotating, while that of HD 54371 is rotating faster than its pseudosynchronous velocity.

We have determined improved spectroscopic orbits for three doublelined binaries, HD 82191 (Am), {omega} Dra (F5 V), and 108 Her (Am), using radial velocities from the 2.1 m telescope at McDonald Observatory, the coude feed telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory, and 2 m telescope at Fairborn Observatory. The orbital periods range from 5.28 to 9.01 days, and all three systems have circular orbits. The new orbital dimensions (a {sub 1} sin i and a {sub 2} sin i) and minimum masses (m {sub 1} sin{sup 3} i and m {sub 2} sin{sup 3} i) have accuracies of 0.2% ormore »

NEW PRECISION ORBITS OF BRIGHT DOUBLELINED SPECTROSCOPIC BINARIES. IV. 66 ANDROMEDAE, HR 6979, AND HR 9059
We have determined improved spectroscopic orbits for three doublelined binaries, 66 And (F4 V), HR 6979 (Am), and HR 9059 (F5 IV) using radial velocities from the 2.1 m telescope at McDonald Observatory, the coude feed telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory, and 2 m telescope at Fairborn Observatory. The orbital periods range from 11.0 to 14.3 days, and all three systems have eccentric orbits. The new orbital dimensions (a {sub 1} sin i and a {sub 2} sin i) and minimum masses (m {sub 1} sin{sup 3} i and m {sub 2} sin{sup 3} i) have accuracies of 0.2%more » 
NEW PRECISION ORBITS OF BRIGHT DOUBLELINED SPECTROSCOPIC BINARIES. V. THE AM STARS HD 434 AND 41 SEXTANTIS
We have detected the secondary component in two previously known spectroscopic binaries, HD 434 and 41 Sex, and for the first time determined doublelined orbits for them. Despite the relatively long period of 34.26 days and a moderate eccentricity of 0.32, combined with the components' rotationally broadened lines, measurement of the primary and secondary radial velocities of HD 434 has enabled us to obtain significantly improved orbital elements. While the 41 Sex system has a much shorter period of 6.167 days and a circular orbit, the estimated V mag difference of 3.2 between its components also makes this a challengingmore » 
NEW PRECISION ORBITS OF BRIGHT DOUBLELINED SPECTROSCOPIC BINARIES. VII. 47 ANDROMEDAE, 38 CASSIOPEIAE, AND HR 8467
Improved orbital elements for three doublelined spectroscopic binaries, 47 And, 38 Cas, and HR 8467, have been determined with extensive new radial velocities. For 38 Cas lines of the secondary have been detected for the first time. Given the orbital periods for these systems of 35.3682, 134.130, and 42.3813 days, respectively, it is not surprising that all three have either moderate or relatively high eccentricities. The orbital dimensions (a{sub 1}sin i and a{sub 2}sin i) and minimum masses (m{sub 1}sin{sup 3}i and m{sub 2}sin{sup 3}i) have accuracies of 0.5% or better. An astrometric orbit for 38 Cas, which was recomputedmore » 
NEW PRECISION ORBITS OF BRIGHT DOUBLELINED SPECTROSCOPIC BINARIES. VI. HD 24623 AND V923 SCORPII
Using new radial velocities obtained at KPNO and Fairborn Observatory, we have determined improved spectroscopic orbits for two doublelined Ftype binaries, HD 24623 and V923 Sco. The orbital periods are 19.66304 and 34.8386 days, respectively, so it is not surprising that their orbits have relatively high eccentricities of nearly 0.5. The orbital dimensions (a{sub 1}sin i and a{sub 2}sin i) and minimum masses (m{sub 1}sin{sup 3}i and m{sub 2}sin{sup 3}i) have accuracies of 0.2% or better. Extensive photometry of HD 24623 with the T4 0.75 m automatic photometric telescope at Fairborn Observatory shows no evidence of eclipses. Instead, a verymore »
