So I just found the Habitable Zones in Multiple Star Systems interactive website, where I can create a habitable zone out of multiple stars using the temperature, luminosity, mass and position of each star, which makes it useful for worldbuilders like me. But I prefer to use reality and realism to put into my worldbuilding, so a system of three G-type main sequence stars (or "yellow dwarves") requires an actual understanding of those particular types of stars.
Our sun is, in regards to size, a midway between the maximum and minimum parameters of a yellow dwarf. Here are the basic parameters of a yellow dwarf:
- A mass anywhere between 84 and 115% of our sun's
- A surface temperature anywhere between 5300 and 6,000 degrees Kelvin
We know the luminosity of our sun, but if it were actually a midway yellow dwarf, then what would the maximum and minimum luminosity of a G-type main-sequence star be?
