v5 v6 7 7 By substituting for rho, we can turn this into the more physically intuitive condition: 8 8 9 [[latex($\lambda_J \propto (Cs^2/ G*M/r^3)^{1/2}$)]]9 [[latex($\lambda_J \propto (Cs^2/(G*M/r^3))^{1/2}$)]] 10 10 11 11 Thus, for a given cloud of radius r, sound speed Cs, and mass M, we can compute a Jeans length, which is either less than r or greater than r. For a [[latex($\lambda_J$)]] < r, the cloud is gravitationally unstable. For the opposite, the cloud is gravitationally stable.
