The physical properties of normal A stars

  • Saul J. Adelman (a1)

Designating a star as of A-type is a result of spectral classification. After separating the peculiar stars from those deemed to be normal using the results of a century of stellar astrophysical wisdom, I define the physical properties of the “normal” stars. The hotter A stars have atmospheres almost in radiative equilibrium. In the A stars convective motions can be found which increase in strength as the temperature decreases.To search for other articles by the author(s) go to:
