Help with astronomy
Astronomers refer to the balance of inward and outward forces inside a star as hydrostatic equilibrium. Use layman’s terms to explain, in a 3 paragraph essay, what these forces are, and how they keep a star from either blowing up or collapsing.
Hydrostatic equilibrium occurs when inwards forces are balanced by outward forces (Haensel, Potekhin & Yakovlev, 2006). Starts are objects that exist in space, and they face gravitational forces. Gravitational force as we know it tends to crush something as it pulls inside. It is a force exerted from the outside of an object.
To gain equilibrium this force needs to be counteracted. There………….
