What the spectrum of radiation of stellar objects depends of?

  1. Jan 31, 2004 #1
    In the “ Theory development ” forum I develop my theory of a general origin of all fundamental forces. As an example of practical application of this theory I have developed the table of spectra of radiation of stars and fogs in dependence from a value of their magnetic and gravity fields. I ask to compare my results to an existing database and to make the conclusion about conformity.
    The table is in the attachment.

    You will need to quantify the labels in your table, only then would it be possible to make a comparison.

    Before you go collecting data on stars, I suggest that you read up about the luminosity-radius-temperature relationship, e.g.:
    http://www-astronomy.mps.ohio-state.edu/~depoy/courses/AST162_LECTURE_NOTES/Unit1/hrdiag.html [Broken]
    and the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram, e.g.:
    http://cassfos02.ucsd.edu/public/tutorial/HR.html [Broken]

    It will then be a simple exercise to calculate the surface gravity of any star in the H-R diagram; you will then have a gravity-spectrum relationship (the spectrum of a star is a much more detailed description than 'colour').

    To begin with, you may assume all stars have 'weak' magnetic fields; once you've done the first stage of the research program I outlined here, you can start looking into variations due to magnetic field.

    BTW, what do you mean by 'fogs'?
