Black holes and particles

  1. Jan 14, 2008 #1
    Correctly speaking all particles having mass should be a black and should have a small but finite swarchild radius,for example the electron,quarks etc are all black holes.
    But what would happen if two particles come within their swarzchild radius?????

    Where did you come by this assertion ?
    Whether a mass can become a black hole depends crucially on the mass of the matter, which has to be above a certain limit.

    Very unlikely. Tiny black holes evaporate and explode fairly quickly according to some theories.

    Some physicists don't accept that there are any black holes anywhere.

    i wasnt speaking of stellar collapse on chandrashekar limit.
    what i meant to say that any point like mass should have a swarzchild radius
    in the case of electrons it should be infinitely infinitely small

    Yes, if you calculate the Swarzschild radius of an electron it is very small. But an electron is not a black hole.

    Maybe you need to find the definition of black hole.
