Week 2

After being gone all week, I came back to see that Brendan had revised our previous models and we started working on models based on stellar flux. Flux density is the amount of energy per area coming from the star. We are using this model because we can accurately determine the flux of each star, which makes it easier for us to calculate the temperatures for regions around them. img_1411-1
