Eddington Luminosity Limit Calculator

When there is a balance between the inward gravitational force and outward radiation transfer , a luminosity is attained by the object. This is known as the eddington limiting luminosity and limit of the star can be calculated using the gravitational constant, stellar mass, proton mass thomson cross section and speed of light.

Code to add this calci to your website  Formula:

LE = (4 * π * G * M * mp * c) / ( σT) Where, LE = Eddington Limiting Luminosity G = Constant Of Gravitation M = Stellar Mass π = 3.14 mp = Mass Of Proton c = Speed Of Light σT = Thomson Cross Section
