The Hertzsprung Russell Diagram

The Hertzsprung Russell Diagram. We can express luminosity in solar units: how many times more powerful is the star than the Sun? Bottom: Nearby stars and some of the brighter stars in the.

A Hertzsprung-Russell diagram, or HR diagram, is a graph of stellar temperatures (plotted on the horizontal axis) and luminosities or brightnesses (plotted on the vertical axis). Like we did when we looked first at planetary orbits and gravity, and then later at the spectra of objects and atomic physics, we will need to consider some historical context as we move from the study of the properties of stars into an understanding of the true physical nature. They are all challenged and a little uncomfortable with the.
