SOLUTION SET 5 Physics 2022 1. The two curves cross at about 20,000 K, which is about at the B3-B4 spectral type. 2. L rigel = 1.6 T sun L rigel = 64,000 L sun L rigel / L sun = (R rigel / R sun ) 2 (T rigel / T sun ) 4 (64,000) = (R rigel / R sun ) 2 (1.6) 4 R rigel = 98.8 R sun 3. R P = 2R Q T P = 4000 K T Q = 8000 K L P / L Q = (R P 2 / R Q 2 ) (T P 4 / T Q 4 ) = (2) 2 (4000/8000) 4 = 4 (1/2) 4 = ¼ L Q = 4 L P 4. L X = 12 L Y T X = 3500 K T Y = 7800 K L X / L Y = (R X 2 / R Y 2 ) (T X 4 / T Y 4 ) (R X 2 / R Y 2 ) = (7800/3500) 4 (12) = (2.2) 4 (12) = 296 R X = 17 R Y 5. L star = 130 L sun B8 therefore T star 15,000 K L star / L sun = (R star / R sun ) 2 (T star / T sun ) 4 (130) = (R star / R sun ) 2 (15000 / 5800) 4 R star = 1.7 R sun
