Part III: Plotting Stars
Mark each of the following on the H-R diagram and label it as indicated. You may use page 15 of
your ESRT to help you.
6. Draw and label a long diagonal line showing the approximate location of the main sequence.
7. A large circle indicating the area where you find the biggest diameter stars, labeled supergiants
8. A large circle indicating where you would find white dwarfs, labeled white dwarfs
9. A blue main sequence star labeled B
10. A red dwarf main sequence star labeled D
11. A sun-like star labeled S
12. A red giant the same color as D and the same brightness as B labeled G
13. A white dwarf the same color as B and the same brightness as D labeled wd
Part 3: Getting Information from the H-R Diagram
13. Stars B and G have the same brightness. Does this mean they are the same temperature?
Why or why not?
14. Stars D and G have the same color. Does this mean they are the same temperature? Why or
why not?
15. What is different about star G that allows it to be the same color as D but as bright as B?
Explain.
16. How can a white dwarf be so hot in temperature but still not as bright as or Sun?
