Answer to Question #17847 in Atomic and Nuclear Physics for Brad

Question #17847
Lithium Burning in stars – how can Lithium burn in a star at only ~3e6K when the PP reaction requires 15e6K? The classical Coulomb formula would suggest that 3 protons should require 3 times the temperature, or 45e6K, not 1/5 the temperature. What properties of the 7Li + P reaction allow for such a low temperature?
