It is known that stars rotate with an angular velocity and experience angular momentum loss throughout their evolution. Outflows such as stellar wind are an example of this and their impact on rotation evolution is believed to be well understood. My project was aimed at investigating the impact that coronal mass ejections have on main sequence solar mass stars.
