How would a star regain it's state of equilibrium if the energy generation rate of a star were to become slightly smaller than it's equilibrium?

  • Science: Astronomy -

    It would start to collapse due to less power generation. This would result in heating of the core, which would accelerate fusion reactions there. Hence, equilibrium is maintained.
