I will look thses values up in my University Astrophysics text tonight. If I
recall, the formulas relating radius mass and luminosity will only be
working if it is main sequence. For example when a star goes red giant, it
does not gain any mass but its radius puffs up greatly.

Can I post excel files to this forum?

If not I will make sure that they are excel friendly.
