Hi,
   I would be very glad if you can provide me the answers(or references) for 
   following...
   1.The solid angle of entire observation by XMM in our galaxy or the
extremities of
     l and b.
   2.The sensitivity flux limit of XMM pn and mos cameras. 

                                                          Thank you.

Dear Ankur Kushwaha,

 the best reference for details of XMM-Newton is the Users Handbook:
http://xmm.esac.esa.int/external/xmm_user_support/documentation/uhb/index.html

  In particular:
1.  The sky visibility is given in
 http://xmm.esac.esa.int/external/xmm_user_support/documentation/uhb/skyvis.html
where you can check certain regions of the sky with the interactive tool
 http://xmm.esac.esa.int/external/xmm_science/AO12/XMM_Visibility/index.shtml

2. The sensitivity limits of the EPIC cameras are given in
 http://xmm.esac.esa.int/external/xmm_user_support/documentation/uhb/epicsens.html

 The quantum efficiency is given in
http://xmm.esac.esa.int/external/xmm_user_support/documentation/uhb/epicqe.html
 and effective areas for given filters can be found here:
http://xmm.esac.esa.int/external/xmm_user_support/documentation/uhb/epicfilters.html

Hope this helps.

Best wishes,
Jan-Uwe Ness
