Hello, group!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm wondering how to calculate the HZ for a contact binary system.

Obviously, you can't use just one of the elements, so I wondered how their temperatures would add together. I figure it's not straight addition and I figure it's not just the hotter of the two.

Is there a formula to calculate the combined temperatures?

Thanx!
