We combine the X-ray data and the Sunyaev-Zel’dovich effect with the constraints from gravitational lensing for an intermediate redshift cluster to check the consistency of various mass estimates and the validity of the assumption of hydrostatic equilibrium, and to deduce the properties of the intra-cluster gas, the profile of the cluster potential and H o .
