Pressure & Gravity

14.3 - Understand the effects of the interaction between radiation pressure and gravity in a main sequence star

14.4 - Understand changes to the radiation pressure-gravity balance at different stages in the life cycle of a star with a mass similar to the Sun

14.5 - Understand the balance between electron pressure and gravity in a white dwarf star

14.6 - Understand changes to the radiation pressure-gravity balance at different stages in the life cycle of a star with a mass much greater than the Sun

14.7 - Understand the balance between neutron pressure and gravity in a neutron star

14.8 - Understand the effect the Chandrasekhar Limit has on the outcome on the final stages of the life cycle of a star
