Paper Abstract

A model of slow-flowing-in time gravitational compression of a spheroidal body has been considered. The pressure inside a spheroidal body has been calculated at mechanical unstable equilibrium, and the internal energy connected with it has been shown to be 3 times less than the potential energy of the gravitating spheroidal body. Time equations have been derived for a slow-flowing gravitational compression of spheroidal body in the vicinity of unstable equilibrium state. Also, has been deduced a thermodynamic relation whereby the gravitational thermodynamic potential has been determined. Two thirds of gravitational potential energy have been shown to be consumed in the substance mass transfer inside the spheroidal body due to the gravitational thermodynamic potential. The density of the mass flow has been introduced for the slow-gravitational spheroidal body.
