In this work, we present results of the analysis of data the Abell 1800 cluster of galaxies obtained from X-ray observations by the Suzaku satellite. A1800 is a nearby (z=0.0755) cluster, located at RA=13h49m41s, DEC=+28d04.1m. The intra cluster hot plasma properties are studied by the XIS detector. The radial profile is studied in order to understand the intracluster medium (ICM) morphology and the dynamical history of the cluster. Based on the imaging and spectral analysis we try to understand the structural evolution and merger history of A1800.
