In this work, we investigate astrophysical systems in a Newtonian regime using anisotropic matter. For this purpose, we considered that both radial and tangential pressures satisfy a generalized Chaplygin-type equation of state. Using this model, we found the Lane–Emden equation for this system and solved it numerically for several sets of parameters. Finally, we explored the mass supported by this physical system and compared it with the Chandrasekhar mass.
