We present new spectroscopic observations of the double-lined eclipsing binary V850 Cyg. The long cadence photometric observations obtained by Kepler were analysed and combined with the analysis of radial velocities for deriving the absolute parameters of the components. Masses and radii were determined as M-p=1.601 +/- 0.076 M-circle dot and R-p=4.239 +/- 0.076 R-circle dot, M-s=0.851 +/- 0.053 M-circle dot and R-s=5.054 +/- 0.087 R-circle dot for the components of V850 Cyg. We estimate an interstellar reddening of 0.28 +/- 0.12 mag and a distance of 1040 +/- 160 pc for the system. The measured rotational velocity of the secondary appears to lower than that of synchronize rotation. However its spectral lines are too weak to be measured the rotational velocity with reasonable accuracy. We have extracted the synthetic light curve from the observations and excluded the data within the eclipses for the frequency analysis. We obtained at least nine frequencies in the gamma Dor regime. It seems that the primary component oscillates with a dominant period of about 1.152549 +/- 0.000009 days. We also compare pulsational properties of the primary star of V850 Cyg with the gamma Dor type pulsating components in other binaries. (C) 2016 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
