luminosity

The total amount of energy that an object, such as a star, radiates into space every second. Luminosity depends on both the surface area and the surface temperature of an object, so that, for example, two stars with the same surface temperature but different luminosity must differ in size. Luminos...

luminosity

luminosity, in astronomy, the rate at which energy of all types is radiated by an object in all directions. A star's luminosity depends on its size and its temperature, varying as the square of the radius and the fourth power of the absolute surface temperature. The sun is a medium-sized star with a...

luminosity

In astronomy, amount of light emitted by a star, expressed as the rate at which it emits energy, as absolute magnitude, or as a ratio to the luminosity of the Sun. The apparent brightness of an object results from its luminosity and its distance from the observer

Luminosity

In astronomy, luminosity is the total amount of energy emitted by a star, galaxy, or other astronomical object per unit time. It is related to brightness, which is the luminosity of an object in a given spectral region. In SI units luminosity is measured in joules per second or watts. Values for luminosity are often given in terms of the luminosit...

Luminosity

[scattering theory] It has the dimensions of events per time per area, and is usually expressed in the cgs units of cm−2·s−1 or the non-SI units of b−1·s−1. In practice, L is depends on the particle beam parameters, such as beam width and particle flow rate, as well as the target properties, such as target size and density. The lu...
