I have an intensity graph versus wavelenght of the light emited by two stars.

For one of stars the curve of the graph temperature is 12000 K; for the other 3000 K.
Is it possible, only from this data, to know wich star will die first?

Thanks

three relationsship in basic stellar astrophysics:

1. (effective) temperature - Bolometric Luminosity

2. Lumonosity - mass

3. Mass - lifetime
