Best Answer

The collapse of a star is based on its age. When it runs out of "Fuel" its inside contracts as the outside expands. it can then super nova or collapse into a tiny star.

List the main sequence of events in a stars life cycle from beginning to end?

The life a star begins in nebulae. Clouds of dust and gas collapse upon themselves to form protostars. Further collapse from gravitational forces causes protostars to become main sequence stars. As time goes by, stars expand. Eventually, the star will collapse and explode. Depending on the original mass of the star, this explosion may result in a black dwarf, ,neutron star, or a black hole.

What two forces balance a star like your sun?

The internal pressure of the star, and the 20 million degree heat, cause the star to expand. The massive gravity of the star causes it to collapse. As long as the Sun's nuclear fusion reaction is going on, it will maintain that balance. About 4 or 5 billion years from now, the Sun's hydrogen fuel will begin to run out, and it will start to collapse. The increasing pressure from the collapse will also increase the temperature, and when it reaches about 100 million degrees, the helium of the Sun will start fusing, causing the Sun to expand into a red giant. After a few billion more years, the Sun will slowly collapse again into a white dwarf star.


Is it possible for a black hole to form without the collapse of a star?

A higher-mass star will turn into a supergiant, then a supernova. Then, it will collapse and shed it's outer layer and leave behind a white dwarf. However, the star may collapse even further and become a black hole.
