Chapters Eighteen / Nineteen

Questions for the day l.jpg

Questions for the Day

  • What are stars born?

  • How do stars evolve?

  • How do stars die?

How are stars born l.jpg

How are stars born?

  • Stars are born from interstellar medium.

  • Disturbances from motion of the galaxy and other stars in the medium cause cores to form.

  • Proto-stars form from the cores.

  • Enough pressure causes the fusion.

Young Stars

  • A star is considered a star when the core is producing fusion.

  • Types

    • Brown Dwarf: A Failed Young Star

    • Beta Pictoris: A Normal Young Star

    • T Tauri: An Active Young Star

Observations of the solar system l.jpg

Observations of the Solar System

  • The planets revolve counterclockwise around the sun; the sun rotates in the same direction.

  • The major planets, except Mercury and Pluto, have orbital inclinations close to the plane of the solar system.

  • Except for Mercury and Pluto, the planets move in orbits that are nearly circular.

Observations cont l.jpg

Observations (cont.)

  • Except for Venus, Uranus and Pluto, the planets rotate counterclockwise, in the same direction as their orbits.

  • The planet’s orbital distances from the sun follow a regular spacing.

  • Most satellites (moons) follow the same direction and lie close to the plane of the planet.

Observations cont21 l.jpg

Observations (cont.)

  • Some satellites follow the regular spacing rule.

  • Long-period comets come in all inclinations, but all other objects are fairly well behaved.

  • All Jovian planets have rings.

Henrietta leavitt l.jpg

Henrietta Leavitt

  • 1868 – 1921

  • Born in Lancaster, Massachusetts

  • Daughter of Congregational Church father

  • Graduated and went to work at Harvard a “computer”.

Henrietta leavitt s work l.jpg

Henrietta Leavitt’s Work

  • Worked under Pickering along side Annie Jump Cannon.

  • In 1912, she published a study of variable stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud.

  • She found a Period-Luminosity relationship for Cephied Variable in the cloud.

Homework 9 l.jpg

Homework 9

  • Describe the processes behind creating a star.

  • Describe the life time of both a B-type and M-type star. Why do they differ in their evolution. Defend the astronomical technique of studying star clusters.
