Hawking Radiation & Parity Imbalance: Matter vs. Anti-Matter

Therefore, In summary, Hawking radiation does not account for the parity imbalance between matter and anti-matter. Black holes do create matter, but this is not due to Hawking radiation. Instead, when a matter/anti-matter pair materializes on either side of the event horizon of a black hole, the BH loses mass regardless of which particle is absorbed. This can potentially lead to the formation of galaxies over time.

Does Hawking radiation account for the parity imbalance between matter and anti-matter?
Do Black Holes create matter?

If a matter/anti-matter pair materializes on either side of the event horizon of a black hole:
1) if the matter particle is on the inside of the event horizon, the mass of the black hole increases, Its anti-matter twin will collide with a particle of matter and annhihilate with a burst of energy. The area around the event horizon should be very radioactive.​
2) If the anti-matter particle is on the inside of the event horizon, the mass of the black hole decreases? (isn't this a violation of the conservation of energy? The energy would not be able to exit the black hole. The mass of the black hole should increase). Its matter twin will increase the mass of matter surrounding the black hole. (could this be how galaxies are eventually created? The particles combining to form Hydrogen? Over time, this accumulation of mass could create massive nebulas of gas, leading to star formation.)​

No. Whether the antimatter or matter particle is the one absorbed by the BH, the effect is still the same: the BH loses mass.
 

What is Hawking radiation?

Hawking radiation is a theoretical concept proposed by physicist Stephen Hawking in which black holes emit radiation due to quantum effects at their event horizon, the point of no return for matter and light.

What is the significance of Hawking radiation?

Hawking radiation is significant because it suggests that black holes are not completely black, as previously thought. It also provides a way for black holes to lose mass over time and eventually evaporate.

What is parity imbalance in relation to matter and anti-matter?

Parity imbalance refers to the unequal amounts of matter and anti-matter in the universe. According to the Big Bang theory, equal amounts of matter and anti-matter should have been created, but there is a significant imbalance in favor of matter.

How does Hawking radiation affect the parity imbalance between matter and anti-matter?

Hawking radiation can potentially contribute to the parity imbalance by producing more matter particles than anti-matter particles. This is because the radiation is created in pairs of particles, but one of the particles falls into the black hole while the other escapes, resulting in a net production of matter.

Is there any evidence for Hawking radiation and its impact on the parity imbalance?

Currently, there is no direct evidence for Hawking radiation as it is difficult to observe and measure. However, the concept is supported by mathematical calculations and some indirect observations, such as the detection of particle pairs near black holes. Further research and observations are needed to fully understand the impact of Hawking radiation on the parity imbalance between matter and anti-matter.
