Where does matter go in a black hole?
Once inside the black hole’s event horizon, matter will be torn apart into its smallest subatomic components and eventually be squeezed into the singularity. As the singularity accumulates more and more matter, the size of the black hole’s event horizon increases proportionally.
Do black holes exist?
Black holes of stellar mass form when very massive stars collapse at the end of their life cycle. After a black hole has formed, it can continue to grow by absorbing mass from its surroundings. There is consensus that supermassive black holes exist in the centers of most galaxies.
Does gravity have an effect on light?
Gravity bends light Light travels through spacetime, which can be warped and curved—so light should dip and curve in the presence of massive objects. This effect is known as gravitational lensing GLOSSARY gravitational lensingThe bending of light caused by gravity .
How come light has no mass?
Photons are the smallest measure of light, and no, they don’t have mass. So that’s easy, right? Light is composed of photons, which have no mass, so therefore light has no mass and can’t weigh anything. Not so fast.
What happens to light if it has zero mass?
You are right that according to Newton’s gravity, the force of gravity on particle that has 0 mass would be zero, and so gravity should not affect light. In fact, according to Newton’s gravity Black holes should not exist: no matter how strong gravity is, light would always be able to escape!
How are the forces of light and gravity related?
Only when we understand our true connection to the world around us (i.e. What matter is and how it is necessarily connected by the forces of Light and Gravity) will we understand the truth about how we should live in harmony with life on earth. Fortunately for Humanity this knowledge has finally been discovered.
Is it true that dark matter does not exist?
Now, an international team of scientists says it has found new evidence that perhaps dark matter doesn’t really exist after all.
Is there another force in the black hole or does light have mass?
Is there another force in the black hole or does light has mass? This is a great question! You are right that according to Newton’s gravity, the force of gravity on particle that has 0 mass would be zero, and so gravity should not affect light.
