Unformatted text preview: = v/ 4 R , where v is the speed of sound in the star. The period is T = 1 /f = 4 R/v . (c) The speed of sound is v = p B/ , where B is the bulk modulus and is the density of stellar material. The radius is R = 9 . 10 3 R s , where R s is the radius of the Sun (6 . 96 10 8 m). Thus T = 4 R r B = 4(9 . 10 3 )(6 . 96 10 8 m) s 1 . 10 10 kg / m 3 1 . 33 10 22 Pa = 22 s ....
