Determine the absolute stellar magnitude of Castor (a Gemini) if its apparent stellar magnitude is 2 and the distance to it is 13 pc.

Let’s use the formula M = m + 5-5lg D; substitute the values of M = m + 5 – 5lg 13; M = 2 + 5 – 5lgl3; M = +1.5.

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
