Follow this link to the Hertzsprung-Russell Diagram Explorer simulation. (Please try using Explorer, or Firefox browsers. Note that when using these browsers you will need to allow Adobe-Flash to run, and there might be plugins as well. This is very safe & trusted software. For example, look up in the web address bar and see if the plug-in manager has come up example, and you might need to click on that to allow the app to open. The direct site you are going to is: HR Simulation .)
When you open the simulation you will see an image of two stars, one labeled star and one labeled sun. The default setting when you open the simulation is for the star to have the same settings as the Sun for all values of temperature, luminosity, and radius. (T = 5,800K, L = 1sun, R = 1 sun). You can change the settings in various ways, clicking on the slider bars for temperature and luminosity, or clicking on various spots on the HR diagram to move the red crosshair shown on the diagram. (Below is a screenshot of the Hertzsprung-Russell Diagram Explorer.)
To start this activity check all four of the boxes under options so they will be seen on the HR diagram. You will now be asked to navigate through the simulation and answer questions on what you see. You will also be asked questions for which you will need to consult other sources.
The next series of questions will ask you to move the red crosshairs on the diagram to different spots within the diagram to understand the evolution of our Sun and the changes that it will experience with time.
