So, stars with half our sun's mass are red dwarfs, and stars 10 times our sun's mass are blue supergiants. Would a star 5 times its mass have similar properties to our sun? Would its use of the CNO cycle rather than the PP chain to fuse hydrogen have an influence on its eventual fate? It's just that brown dwarfs and red dwarfs etc seem to be neatly compartmentalised into certain masses and given certain properties, but what is the general category for stars like our sun, those which become red giants but never supernovae?
If anyone could link me to an article or something that addresses this, it would also be very much appreciated :)
