Part 5 of 6
Before you start reading, let me explain my credentials. I have none. For 72 years I have been fascinated first about Astronomy and recently Physics.
Einstein's Theories of Special and General Relativity made people rethink the concept of gravity. He defined gravity as an aspect of the Space-Time Continuum.
I am proposing a Theory of Circular Motion to redefine the concept of gravity.

Entrapment is one aspect of my Theory of Circulator Motion. It explains formation of stars in the universe.
It is the opposite of Entropy, which is defined as:
The measure of a system's thermal energy per unit temperature that is unavailable for doing useful work. Because work is obtained from ordered molecular motion, the amount of entropy is also a measure of the molecular disorder, or randomness, of a system.
Entropy explains behavior in a closed system. Entrapment explains behavior in a condensed but open system, such as a cloud of stellar gas that becomes a sun.
It is universally assumed that gravity pulls the gases together into a dense form that becomes a star. I disagree.
Let's use a simple idea of a stellar cloud containing a swirling mass of atoms. In this cloud, there are areas of higher density.
Atoms in the densest or core areas are so close together, they travel tiny distances before "bumping" into another atom.
In a real way, they are entrapped. Escape is rare.
Some atoms just outside core areas, will enter core areas and also become entrapped.
This process will increase until there is sufficient compression of atoms for fusion reactions to happen.
At this point, my knowledge is insufficient to continue.
However, I think we just saw the birth of a star.
