hi fellas, I have been working on Chandrashekhar limit, and I found a mass-radius relationship for the nonrelativistic fermi gases using this formula and i got the graph of this

R=((18pi)^(2/3))/10 *H^2/(GmM^(1/3) ) (0.5/n)^(5/3)

where H=(6.63*10^-34)/2pi
M is the independent variable

but what changes should I make if i want to plot a mass-radius relationship for relativistic fermi gases? actually can you suggest me a reading for differentiating between relativistic and non relativistic fermi gases?

Chandrashekhar limit for relativistic fermion gas

all i found out is the relation of radius vs mass for non relativistic gas, but is there any equation of R for non relativistic one where the radius goes to zero as mass goes to 1.44 ?
