The Chandrasekhar Limit is defined as the maximum mass of a white dwarf which is said to be 1.44 solar masses. My doubt here is if it is defined as being the mass of 1.44 suns then the sun should not even be burning fuel right now. Only then will its mass remain the same. The Sun keeps burning a lot of fuel. Its about 5 million tons of matter is being converted into energy every second. Then shouldn't the definition of the Chandrasekhar Limit be more precise or am I entirely wrong ?
