Consider an electron traveling through space at 99% of the speed of light. It passes within the event horizon of a black hole. We know that it can not escape. This implies something to me and I am wondering if it is correct: Since it does not come out, that means that the acceleration by the black hole within the event horizon is greater than 99% the speed of light, per second. I am guessing that most black hole event horizons are a lot less, in diameter, than 99% of 299,792,458 meters, which is how far the electron would travel in one second if its course is not altered by the black hole. Therefore, since most event horizon's diameters are less than 99% of 299,792,458 meters, the acceleration by the black hole, inside the event horizon, must be a lot larger than 99% of 299,792,458 meters per second, per second. Is this correct?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks,

Jake
