Lesson: Stellar Evolution Physics
In this lesson, we will learn how to describe how stars of different masses develop over the course of billions of years.
List the following stages of stellar evolution in order for a certain star that has a mass of 80% of the Sun:
- A white dwarf
- A nebula
- A red giant
- A main sequence star
- A protostar
For approximately how long does a star like the Sun remain a main sequence star?
Which of the following is the correct description of a black dwarf star?
