Black hole angular velocity

  1. Nov 27, 2012 #1
    Could a small blackhole achieve an angular velocity such that the centripetal force is >= gravity, which would expand it enough to turn into a quark star or neutron star? I realize that in order to rotate the blackhole further, more mass must be added that will increase the amount of centripetal force needed to expand it, so is it actually feasible in nature? If it can, would the singularity still exist at the center?

    No it can't.
