Structure of the exam
Structure of the Exam

Closed book.

Calculators strongly recommended. (Check batteries!)

Pencils are a good idea for the calculations. (but not necessary)

Formulae and constants you need will be provided.

Just like the sample exam.

Will not be a test of time. Should be finished in under one hour. But will have full 75minutes to complete it.


How to study
How to Study

Knowledge

Facts. Multiple Choice

Fast. Do these first.

Conceptual

How things work. Written Answers

Calculations

Identify and use the formulas.

These take longer. Do them last.

Homeworks

Redo them.

Do additional exercises.

Lecture Notes

Go through each powerpoint slide and make certain you understand.

Textbook

Background reading of for explanation of individual points.

Test yourself to identify weak areas using review sheet and sample exam.

The main sequence
The Main Sequence

Stars Differ By:

Mass

Age

Composition

Nothing else!

And composition doesn’t vary

Age and Mass only.

Those on main sequence are all

burning H so age drops out.

MS is function of MASS only!!!

MS Lifetime

What determines amount of time a star stays on Main Sequence?

Just like a kerosene heater: Amount of fuel and rate of burn.

More Mass = More Fuel

More Luminosity = Greater Burn Rate

We can scale from the Sun: M = 1M L = 1L

Sun lasts 1010 years

M in solar masses

L in solar luminosities


Some lifetimes
Some Lifetimes

Mass Luminosity Lifetime in Billion Years

Sun 1 1 10

Sirius 2 10 2

Prox Cen .4 .001 4000

Rigel 8 10,000 .008

Dinky little stars like Prox Cen will last trillions of years

Huge stars like Rigel are gone in a few million

There aren’t many large stars out there, because they don’t last.

10,000 O stars of the 100,000,000,000 Milky Way stars
