More information onn HT Cas
- It involves a smaller star that is a white dwarf and a larger star that is nonetheless smaller than the Sun (the size of the larger star should make sense, once you have made your calculations).
- This system has an inclination of 83 degrees. A 90 degrees inclination system would be one where the smaller star traverses the central star exactly in the middle, providing some evidence that it exhibits a Total Eclipse) in its light curve.
- It's orbital velocity is 390 km/sec.
|Take me back to the example light curve and a model of orbital periods of binary systems.|
