This download is a PowerPoint and lesson plan explaining the H-R diagram and the movement of stars on that diagram. Stellar types are also discussed as well as alternative p-p fusion chains.
This is lesson 7 / 12 from my Astrophysics / Cosmology course, all available individually or as a bundle at a reduced price.
General shape: main sequence, dwarfs and giants.
Axis scales range from –10 to +15 (absolute magnitude) and 50 000 K to 2 500 K (temperature) or OBAFGKM (spectral class).
Students should be familiar with the position of the Sun on the HR diagram.
Stellar evolution: path of a star similar to our Sun on the HR diagram from formation to white dwarf.
