Schonberg-Chandrasekhar limit original
Chandrasekhar limit original
star this property definition This represents the maximum fraction of a star's mass that can be contained within an isothermal core while still supporting the rest of the star in hydrostatic equilibrium. Once the mass of an isothermal helium core exceeds this limit, the corse collapses and the star evolve rapidly. The limit varies depending on the star.
