I like this article, and think that it can be strengthened if we merge the Jeans length and Jeans mass articles into it. I suggest we keep the "collapse time"/"free-fall time" distinct, as it is essentially a purely gravitational (as opposed to a combined gravitational/hydrodynamical) phenomenon.

  • support I think they should be merged. As the Jeans Instability is the more general page, it should be kept. But I think it should be merged carefully as there's a lot of good stuff in the Jeans mass which needs to come over. --H2g2bob 17:19, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
  • support After this length of time, the stubiness of the length article is not justifiable, and I suspect the "swindle" material applies equally to both pages, though this is a little out of my league. — MaxEnt (talk) 23:51, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. merge complete. --DavidCary (talk) 06:23, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
