Kelvin Helmholtz Time Scale Calculation Using Gravitational Potential Energy

The Kelvin Helmholtz time scale is the time that is taken by the stars to emit its kinetic energy content. Use our simple online calculator to perform Kelvin Helmholtz time scale calculation using gravitational potential energy and the body's luminosity. The Kelvin time scale is also called as the thermal time scale.
