A solar mass is the unit of measure that is equal to the mass of the sun.[1] It is used in astronomy to show relative masses between celestial objects (e.g. 1.4 solar masses is 1.4 times the mass of the sun). One solar mass is approximately 1.989 × 1030 kg. It is equivalent to roughly 333,000 times the mass of the Earth.[1]
