Astronomy 2: Stellar and Circumstellar Physics 4. Stellar Winds (1)

Slide 2

4.1.1 Solar wind 4.1 Observations of stellar winds Radiative center Convective envelope, where dynamo procedure is going on Corona , where the sunlight based wind starts to blow Structure of the Sun

Slide 3

Interaction of the Earth\'s magnetosphere with the sun powered wind

Slide 4

Northern lights

Slide 5

Boundary between the close planetary system and the interstellar space

Slide 6

Why the sun based wind blows? (Parker 1958) Suppose the sunlight based crown is static, then the condition of movement is given by If we accept the crown to be isothermal, i.e., with being the isothermal sound velocity, we have

Slide 7

where Therefore, the sun based crown can\'t be static.

4.1.2 Winds from huge stars: P Cygni profiles P Cygni profile : Profile described by solid discharge lines with relating blueshifted assimilation lines.

Slide 9

P Cygni profiles: lines from an extending environment/stellar wind Emission Absorption E A Total spectator wavelength

Slide 11

Formation of a P Cygni Line-Profile By S. Owocki

Slide 12

4.2 General conditions and formalism for stellar winds 4.2.1 What is a stellar wind? A stellar wind is: a maintained surge in the external layers of a star, through which the star loses its mass persistently. a wellspring of mass, precise force, and vitality to the interstellar matter.

Slide 13

4.2.2 Hydrostatic balance in the base of a wind Eq of movement: Eq of state: T changes bit by bit

Slide 14

In the base of a wind, the air is exponentially stratified with a scale tallness much littler than the stellar range. e.g., Solar photosphere

Slide 15

4.2.3. General dynamical conditions Mass Momentum Internal vitality EOS

Slide 16

Steady, round development Mass misfortune rate Momentum Total vitality work warming conduction

Slide 17

active vitality potential vitality Energy necessity work warming conduction

Slide 18

Driving system of coronal winds = gas weight slope 4.2.4 A straightforward model of coronal wind: an isothermal wind Assumptions Steady & circularly symmetric. Powers checked are just gravity and weight angle power.

Slide 19

Coronal wind Corona warming Convective envelope Coronal winds are driven by gas weight because of a high T in the crown.

Slide 20

Wind eq: Basic conditions Eq of coherence: Eq of movement: Eq of state:

Slide 21

Wind eq has a peculiarity at The basic point is at The basic point is of seat sort ( x - sort), which is steady for irritations At the basic point, (sonic point),

Slide 22

Solution bends for an isothermal coronal wind (transonic arrangement)

Slide 23

4.2.5 Temperature affectability of mass misfortune rate At the base of a subsonic wind with we have

Slide 24

The thickness dissemination is

Slide 25

Mass misfortune rate is extremely touchy to the temperature! Mass misfortune rate

Slide 26

Mass misfortune rate versus temperature (Owocki 2000)

Slide 27

4.3 Analogy of De laval spouts Critical arrangements have a similarity with streams in rocket spouts.

Slide 28

Basic conditions Eq of congruity: Eq of movement: Eq of state: Flow eq:

Slide 29

Wind eq: Flow eq: Both conditions would be indistinguishable if
