How do black holes relate to physics?

  1. Dec 17, 2011 #1
    I have to write a research paper on a topic of my choice for physics class, I chose black holes simply because they interest me and it was one of the few topics unchosen. Can anyone with more scientific intellect then myself provide some insight as to how black holes relate to physics? Just some base information would be great and I can work from there, I just need some topics to expand upon. Thanks!

    I suggest you start by looking up the definition of "black hole". That should tell you what physics has to do with black holes.
