Aims.The purpose of this work is to investigate the characteristics of a new frequency separation of stellar p-modes.
Methods.Frequency separations are deduced from the asymptotic formula of stellar p-modes. Then, using the theoretical adiabatic frequencies of stellar model, we compute the frequency separations.
Results.A new separation , which is similar to the scaled small separation , is obtained from the asymptotic formula of stellar p-modes. The separations and have the same order. And like the small separation, is mainly sensitive to the conditions in the stellar core. However, with the decrease in the central hydrogen abundance of stars, the separations and deviate more and more from the scaled small separation. This characteristic could be used to extract the information on the central hydrogen abundance of stars.
