The metal in the intracluster medium (ICM) has been ejected or stripped from galaxies. Thus measurements of the metal distribution and the relative abundance of elements, in particular Si/Fe, are important to study the evolution of galaxies, as well as to study the chemical evolution of the ICM. We present the results from ASCA observations of Abell 496 cluster of galaxies. A496 is a nearby rich cluster with a central cD galaxy. At the redshift z=0.0327 of A496, 1 arcmin is 53kpc, where we assumed H
0 = 50kms
0 = 0.5. A496 is known as a cooling flow cluster. Edge and Stewart (1991) obtained the mass flow rate of and the cooling radius of 177 ± 52kpc.
