What is the smallest mass required to produce a black hole? I seem to remember that some particles in a high energy accelerator could collide and produce tiny black holes that would then evaporate into Hawking radiation.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Could a mass that is less than the critical mass required to produce a black hole be made into one through some collision or explosive force?
