Folks,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Please don't flame me for this as it is probably already answered somewhere.

How does one estimate the number of stars in a 500pc^3 which have a range of 10^-2 to 0.1 Lsun?

I am not a maths head, so simple answer that would have the formula would be great.

Thanks
