dc.description.abstract Using XMM-Newton observations, we investigate properties of a flare from the very active but poorly known stellar system 47 Cas. The luminosity at the peak of the flare is found to be 3.54 × 10 ³⁰ erg s⁻¹, which is ∼2 times higher than that at a quiescent state. The quiescent state corona of 47 Cas can be represented by two temperature plasma: 3.7 and 11.0 MK. The time-resolved X-ray spectroscopy of the flare show the variable nature of the temperature, the emission measure, and the abundance. The maximum temperature during the flare is derived as 72.8 MK. We infer the length of a flaring loop to be 3.3 × 10 ¹⁰ cm using a hydrodynamic loop model. Using the RGS spectra, the density during the flare is estimated as 4.0 × 10 ¹⁰ cm⁻³ . The loop scaling laws are also applied when deriving physical parameters of the flaring plasma. en_US
