摘要We present seven sequential weekly observations of NGC 5548 conducted in 2007 with the Suzaku X-ray Imaging Spectrometer (XIS) in the 0.2-12 keV band and Hard X-ray Detector (HXD) in the 10-600 keV band. The iron K alpha line is well detected in all seven observations and K beta line is also detected in four observations. In this paper, we investigate the origin of the Fe K lines using both the width of the line and the reverberation mapping method. With the co-added XIS and HXD spectra, we identify Fe K alpha and K beta line at 6.396(-0.007)(+0.009) keV and 7.08(-0.05)(+0.05) keV, respectively. The width of line obtained from the co-added spectra is 38(-18)(+16) eV (FWHM = 4200(-2000)(+1800) km s(-1)) which corresponds to a radius of 20(-10)(+50) light days, for the virial production of 1.220 x 10(7) M(circle dot) in NGC 5548. To quantitatively investigate the origin of the narrow Fe line by the reverberation mapping method, we compare the observed light curves of Fe K alpha line with the predicted ones, which are obtained by convolving the continuum light curve with the transfer functions in a thin shell and an inclined disk. The best-fit result is given by the disk case with i = 30 degrees which is better than a fit to a constant flux of the Fe K line at the 92.7% level (F-test). However, the results with other geometries are also acceptable (P > 50%). We find that the emitting radius obtained from the light curve is 25-37 light days, which is consistent with the radius derived from the Fe K line width. Combining the results of the line width and variation, the most likely site for the origin of the narrow iron lines is 20-40 light days away from the central engine, though other possibilities are not completely ruled out. This radius is larger than the H beta emitting parts of the broad-line region at 6-10 light days (obtained by the simultaneous optical observation), and smaller than the inner radius of the hot dust in NGC 5548 (at about 50 light days).
