The Life Cycle of Stars

Posted by munkey on July 16th, 2012

GCSE Physics requires student to be able to describe the different stages in a Star’s lifecycle.

I found very few good resources on this subject, as most seem a little dated and don’t really tell it as a story.

With the introduction of the 6 Mark (QWC) questions in the new spec, this is important now more than ever.

Hit the jump for the link.


While it is not all there is to say on the matter, it does cover the main points in a sensible order.

It should be noted that the Higher candidates may be asked to explain/describe /discuss the differences between the cycle for Stars similar in mass to our Sun and those which are much larger.
