Cloud fragmentation

Recommended Posts

Hey guys.

I got some great help in a previous post around a question I was struggling with for my first assignment. Now I'm struggling with another for my second assignment.

The question asks, what 2 pieces of observational evidence could be used to determine whether a interstellar cloud would fragment into many protostars rather than one large protostar.

I've re read the few chapters for fragmentation and can't find the answer. All I could seem to find was if the cloud is big enough it could fragment to produce many protostars. But nowhere does it say it needs to be so big or dense so the answer can't be its radius and density.

Any ideas?
