1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A star experiences a sudden increase in pressure to a new value P'. Taking the average density as ρ and the radius R, estimate the time scale of expansion of the star. (Ignore gravity altogether). 2. Relevant equations The only thing I can see in my notes that may (or may not) be related to this is : tdynamical ≈ √R3/GM 3. The attempt at a solution I'm not sure how to begin, I thought perhaps I could make an equation of motion for an outer shell and equate this to some kind of pressure but I don't know how/ am quite lost. Any help would be much appreciated thanks.
