Combining data with theoretical models, the team estimated that the initial mass of the star was about 20 times great that the mass of our Sun.
Because the circuit court's findings are sufficient to support its determination regardless of whether the presumption of correctness was employed, we need not address whether the presumption of correctness attached to the assessment based on the initial mass appraisal.
A star with an initial mass just above 100 Suns could have caused iPTF14hls's multiple blasts.
The team used detailed analyses of about 250 stars with masses between 15 and 200 times the mass of our Sun to determine the distribution of massive stars born in 30 Doradus -- the so-called initial mass function (IMF).
The initial mass fraction and hence the mass of the desiccant in the tank can be obtained by the measured initial state of solution (temperature and density), which remains constant, as it is nonvolatile.
By further developing my cosmological chemical-evolution models, and exploiting the huge, unique, and already available data-sets for ancient Local group stars, I will simultaneously study the chemical evolution of the Milky Way and its dwarf satellites to: 1) define the host environment (halo regions, dwarf galaxies) and properties (chemistry, kinematics) of second-generation stars; 2) select candidates for high-resolution spectroscopic follow-up; 3) constrain strongly the primordial initial mass function.
We also examined the live biomass of young by subtracting the mass of empty egg case from its initial mass (i.
Fruit mass loss was calculated by taking the difference between initial and final mass of fruit divided by their initial mass and then its percentage was calculated.
The initial mass of the spacecraft is assumed to be 3000 kg, and the engine which is fixed on the bottom of the spacecraft has stable thrust 1173.
