# Singularity vs. Black Hole

What has a higher density? Black Holes or Singularities?

I looked online and all I saw was that they both have infinite densities.

The density of a black hole would be computed as its mass over its volume - the volume within the event horizon. So that would be far from infinite.

A black hole with zero angular momentum should have an embedded singularity where almost all of the black hole's mass will be accumulated. I'm not sure if makes sense to talk about its volume at all, but if it has one perhaps it is zero. Of course, if it is zero, that would give it "infinite density".

I heard that a black hole can have a extremely low density. Also I heard that the bigger the black hole the lower the density. This does not make much sense to me, is it true? And if so can someone explain why?
