the life cycles of stars

Birth Of Star

  • Initially form from DUST and GAS
  • Force of gravity makes the dust particles come spiralling together                 -gravitaional energy in converted into HEAT energy + temp RISES
  • If temp is high enough, H nuclei undergo NUCLEAR FUSION --> He nuclei
  • Gives out massive amounts of heat and light

the life cycle of stars

Birth Of Star

  • initially form from clouds of STARS and GAS
  • Force Of Gravity makes the dust particles come spiralling together.       - gravitational energy is converted into HEAT energy + temp RISES
  • When temp gets high enough, HYDROGEN nuclei undergo nuclear fusion to form HELIUM nuclei
  • gives out massive amounts of HEAT and LIGHT
