Asked Dec 25, 2019

Star A has twice the radius and twice the absolute temperature of star B. What is the ratio of the power output of star A to that of star B? The emissivity of both stars can be assumed to be 1. (a) 4 (b) 8 (c) 16 (d) 32 (e) 64


Expert Answer

Step 1

Power output is directly proportional to the surface area of star. Surface area is directly proportional to the square of radius. It means that power output is directly ...
