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.

No. A star forms when gravity causes a nebula to collapse. As the gas compresses it heats up. eventually, the heat and pressure ignite nuclear fusion.


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.


Then, depending on the remaining mass of the star, it will collapse into a white dwarf, a neutron star (aka pulsar), or a black hole.Then, depending on the remaining mass of the star, it will collapse into a white dwarf, a neutron star (aka pulsar), or a black hole.Then, depending on the remaining mass of the star, it will collapse into a white dwarf, a neutron star (aka pulsar), or a black hole.Then, depending on the remaining mass of the star, it will collapse into a white dwarf, a neutron star (aka pulsar), or a black hole.

The implosion process itself is called a "gravitational collapse". What remains of the star after the collapse can be a white dwarf, a neutron star, or a black hole.


Causes of collapse for which rescue breathing may be needed are anaphylactic shock, heart attack, and poisoning.


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.


Same as any cave collapse: erosion weakening the surrounding rock.


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.


Gravitational potential energy drives the collapse throughout the life of a star, from birth to death.it drives the initial collapse of the nebula into the protostar.it drives the collapse of the protostar into a star, igniting nuclear fusion.it holds the star together against the outward pressure of nuclear fusion.it drives the collapse of the star after nuclear fusion burns out, forming either a white dwarf, a neutron star, or a black hole. depending on its mass before nuclear fusion burned out.

When a protostar has gathered enough mass, its core collapses in on itself. This collapse causes fusion to kickstart, sending energy from the core out ward.


when a star is at the end of its life(depending on mass) a star will sponaniously explode into a supernova. or it will collapse into a black hole.


A dead star would basically be one that ran out of fuel. Such a star no longer has the radiation pressure to keep it "blown up"; it will collapse. Depending on its mass, it will collapse into a white dwarf, a neutron star, or a black hole.


a large star exploding causes a supernova


There are about 40 to 50 of neutrinos released by the collapse of a supernova. This is known as a massive star.
