We have analyzed solar-like oscillations in ∼1700 stars observed by the Kepler Mission, spanning from the main sequence to the red clump. Using evolutionary models, we test asteroseismic scaling relations for the frequency of maximum power (νmax), the large frequency separation (Δν), and oscillation amplitudes. We show that the difference of the Δν–νmax relation for unevolved and evolved stars can be explained by different distributions in effective temperature and stellar mass, in agreement…
