Lesson 6 - Stellar Evolution - Star Birth
Transcript of Lesson 6 - Stellar Evolution - Star Birth
But how do they turn into stars?
It begins when small pockets of the nebula begin to collapse in upon themselves due to gravity... FUSION!! Once fusion begins the stars life truly begins Lesson 3.2 ... and Rise... ... UNTIL... As the pocket of gas gets smaller, the gas becomes more densely packed and the temperature begins to rise... ... and rise... ...and rise.... Main Sequence Stars When a Star begins to consistently undergo Hydrogen Fusion, it is described as a Main Sequence Star.
These stars are in the prime of their lives, busily turning low order elements into higher order ones. But not all stars are the same There are different types of stars. What causes them to be so different is how big they are More Gas = More Blue The more gas a star has, the hotter it is and the more Blue it is. It is a bit like the flame on a Bunsen Burner, the hot flame is blue while the yellow flame is cool. A Brown Dwarf A Brown Dwarf is a star that isn't quite large enough to undergo stable Hydrogen Fusion.
It is also known as a failed star as it is large enough to collapse under gravity but when Fusion starts, the energy released causes it to expand so much that the fusion then stops again.
They can range in size from about 13-80 Jupiters in Mass.
