Just as many things we know today, even stars in our solar system have a life span that can be determined by noting its position on the H-R diagram. Once a star has been categorized based on their size (dwarfs, giants, super giants), they are plotted based on stellar luminosities on the H-R diagram. The life time cycle of the ...
This solution of 234 explains how astronomers determine the life span of a star using the H-R diagram. One reference is provided.
