Review 1. Gravitational Equilibrium (pressure vs. gravity) 2. Nuclear Fusion (proton-proton chain, neutrino, positron, gamma ray, negative feedback) 3. Properties of the Sun (sunspots, convection zone, granulation, radiation zone, corona) 4. Sunspot Cycle (magnetic field variations) 5. Stellar Luminosity (apparent and absolute brightness, magnitudes, luminosity classes) 6. Stellar Surface Temperature (spectral type, OBAFGKM) 7. Stellar Parallax (stellar distance, inverse square law for light) 8. H-R Diagram (location of main sequence, giants, supergiants, white dwarfs) 9. Stellar Mass (variation on H-R diagram, composition) 10. Stellar Age (variation on H-R diagram, star clusters, changes in luminosity and size) 11. Molecular Clouds (composition, collapse, fragmentation, pressure vs. gravity) 12. Dust (extinction, reddening) 13. Star formation (path on H-R diagram, range of masses)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
