    • Abstract


      In this article, we have studied the solutions of Einstein–Maxwell field equations for compact objects in the presence of net electric charge. Interior physical 3-space is defined by Vaidya–Tikekar metric in spheroidal geometry. The metric is characterised by two parameters, namely, spheroidal parameter K and curvature parameter R. The nature of the interior fluid is considered to be anisotropic. Assuming strange matter equation of state (EOS)in the MIT Bag model for the interior matter content, namely, p = $\frac{1}{3}$(ρ − 4 B), where B is the Bag constant, we determine various physical properties of the charged compact star. We have taken the value of surface density ρs(= 4 B) as a probe to evaluate the mass–radius relation for the compact star in the presence of net electric charge and using the range of B necessary for possible stable strange matter. It is interesting to note that in this model thereexist a maximum radius of a star which depends on B. We further note that compactness of the star corresponding to the maximum radius always lies below the Buchdahl limit ($\le$$\frac{4}{9}$) for the maximum allowed value of the pressure anisotropy and electromagnetic field. Energy and causality conditions hold good throughout the star in the presence of charge also. Prediction of mass of the strange stars is possible in the present model. We have determined mass, radius, surface red-shift and other relevant physical parameters of the compact objects.
