As used at astrophysics, Stefan's law is expressed as:

 

L = 4 π R2 σ Τ 4

 

L: Luminosity (in Watts)

R: Star radius

T: Star's surface temperature.

 

It's derived from the Stefan's formula, used priorly to calculate the star temperature:

 

j = 𝜎T4

 

where j is the Iradiance or Flux Density (Watt/m^2), which is estimated by comparisons with

references (like our Sun's Irradiance).

 

What do you think about the use of this formulae?
