I am trying to find out how fast a star's magnitude changes over time, and have two columns of data.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The first is the time since the stay left the main sequence, and the second is Log (L/L_sun).

I am unsure as to how to chance the luminosity values into magnitudes, which means I cant answer the question.

I thought it might be m=2.5 log L but I dont know if this is correct or not.

If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated

Thanks :D
