as the sun evolved it contracted, its internal energy changing fro x to y. what's the total energy radiated, assuming luminosity is comparable with present?
I understand that the rate of change of the internal energy = rate at which energy is radiated away by the star.. but i have been given exact numbers and i don't know what calculations to preform.
any help would be really good. thanks.
