All guest investigators are asked to quantitatively discuss the feasibility of their proposed ROSAT observations. This section provides guidelines as to how to proceed for PSPC observations. Section 10.1 discusses sensitivity (minimum detectable flux), § 10.2 discusses the calculation of expected count rates for sources with known spectral parameter in the total and hard energy band, and 10.3§ discusses the spectral capabilities of the PSPC using pulse heights and filters. Information on off-axis performance is found in § 10.5 , and advice on time-variability studies are provided in § 10.6 . Finally § 10.7 gives a comparison of the ROSAT PSPC to the Einstein IPC.
