    • Abstract

       

      In static space–time, we solve the Einstein–Maxwell equations. The effective gravitational potential and the electric field for charged anisotropic fluid are defined in terms of two free parameters. For such configurations, the mass of the star as a function of stellar radius is found in terms of two aforementioned parameters subjected to certain stability criteria. For various values of these two parameters, one finds that such a mass–radius relationship can model stellar objects located at various regions of the Hertzsprung–Russel diagram.
