There should be a graph that plots all the information in the previous graph. I have the graph that should be used, it is just not inserted here.

Let's make a graph of absolute magnitude vs. spectral type for these stars. This graph is called an H—R Diagram. Use the blank graph paper below, and plot each star‘s absolute magnitude on the y—axis (the
vertical axis] and its spectral type on the x—axis (the horizontal axis]. Each star will be a dot somewhere
on this graph. (Use a different color or symbol for nearby stars and bright stars.) Notice that one star is already plotted: the Sun! The Sun is a specn'al type G2 star, with an absolute
magnitude of 4.? [its apparent magnitude, as discussed in class, is —26!]. Following this example, plot the
rest of the stars on the graph.
