Well, lately, I have had a kind of general wondering ...
And well, this may sound like a really stupid question but I just can't seem to understand why ...
Now, it is said that stars form by gas particles all getting attracted towards a central point. Firstly, is this correct? And if so, the main question I've been thinking about is ...
Why do they all get attracted to a central point?
If it indeed is gravity that attracts them, what mass exists at the central point to thus attract all the gas particles?
Ocalhoun's answer sums it up pretty well.
Bodies (in this case particles) attract each other. If the body is spherical then we can say that the focus of 'attraction' is the centre (not so if it isn't), but that doesn't mean that a cloud of particles is 'attracted' to the centre of the cloud - just to each other.
Well, yes, with the following conditions:
a) No homework questions
b) I'm no mathematician so I might either say I dunno, or get a friend (a mathematical physicist) to answer.
Who would say that the scientist has discover 70% of the earth's potentials?
They are theory that the sun shall die.., how many percent that the theory is close to truth?
