slide4
Adult: Main Sequence
  • As the temperature in the interior rises, nuclear reactions produce outward force and balances the inward force of gravity  hydrostatic equilibrium = star becomes stable and contraction stopsmain-sequence star
energy sources in stars
Energy Sources in Stars
  • 4 hydrogen nuclei fuse to become 1 helium nucleus
  • Since the mass of 4 hydrogen nuclei is greater than the mass of 1 helium nucleus, the leftover mass (0.7%) is converted to energy by Einstein’s equation: E=mc2
slide6
The end states of stars depends upon its mass!

The more massive a star, the faster it consumes its fuel, the shorter its lifetime

slide11
Elderly, core:

White Dwarf

The core of the

white dwarf star is

now all carbon and

oxygen

slide12
Elderly, envelope:

Planetary nebula

Ring Nebula

Eskimo Nebula

slide16
Figure 13.19

Elderly, dying star:Supernova

slide18
Our Sun will never explode.

Only massive stars explode

as supernova!

slide19
Elderly, core:

Neutron Star

Core

High mass stars becomes so dense that protons and electrons combine to become neutrons and star becomes neutron star
