Energetic feedback by active galactic nuclei (AGNs) plays an important evolutionary role in the regulation of star formation (SF) on galactic scales. However, the effects of this feedback as a function of redshift and galaxy properties such as mass, environment and cold gas content remain poorly understood. Given its unique combination of frequency range, angular resolution, and sensitivity, the ngVLA will serve as a transformational new tool in our understanding of how radio jets affect their surroundings. By combining broadband continuum data with measurements of the cold gas content and kinematics, the ngVLA will quantify the energetic impact of radio jets hosted by gas-rich galaxies as the jets interact with the star-forming gas reservoirs of their hosts.
