Abstract: We present the X-ray analysis and the mass estimation of the lensing cluster of galaxies CL0024+17 with Chandra. We found that the temperature profile is consistent with being isothermal and the average X-ray temperature is 4.47 +0.83 -0.54 keV. The X-ray surface brightness profile is represented by the sum of emissions associated with the central three bright elliptical galaxies and the emission from intracluster medium (ICM), which can be well described by a spherical beta-model. Assuming the ICM to be in hydrostatic equilibrium, we estimated the X-ray mass and found it is significantly smaller than the strong lensing mass by a factor of 3.
