If the initial interstellar cloud in star formation has a mass sufficient to form hundreds of stars, how does a single star form from it?

1 Answer

stars are formed in clusters.


Later they get separated. Astronomers estimate that the cluster will survive for about another 250 million years, after which it will disperse due to gravitational interactions with its galactic neighborhood.[8] from wiki pedia.*enter image source here picture pleades cluster earth sky .org/.
