Abstract: Based on the catalog of merging galaxies in the DR2 of the SDSS, the effect of galaxy interactions on the star formation activities is investigated. It is found that interactions between early-type merging galaxies does not enhance significant star formation activity while it does for late-type merging galaxies. Star formation activity is strong correlated with the pair projected separations. For major mergers, the star formation can last longer for closer galaxies while there is no significant difference for minor mergers.
