Event Horizon

  1. May 17, 2005 #1
    Could someone give me a formula that would describe an event horizon, and also explain your view?

    [tex]v_{esc}=\sqrt{\frac{2GM}{r}} [/tex]

    [tex]v_{esc}^2=\frac{2GM}{r}[/tex]

    [tex]r=\frac{2GM}{v_{esc}^2}[/tex]

    escape velocity = speed of light (c)

    [tex]r=\frac{2GM}{c^2}[/tex]
