Hello everyone!

Im a newcomer, a teenager who has countless doubts with respect to relativity, quantum theory etc. But these two questions bother me the most:

1) Hawking radiation states that when the separation of a particle (eg. a photon) into charged particles happens in the event horizon, and one charged particle gets sucked in, to conserve energy, the black hole reduces some of its mass, and eventually, it

But from what I have heard, a black hole has the

2) Secondly, is the singularity in the centre of a proton sized black hole exactly similar to the singularity in the centre of a super massive black hole?

Answers would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

**evaporates and nothing remains in place**.But from what I have heard, a black hole has the

**singularity**which has**infinite**mass. So when the charged particle is sucked in, shouldn't it have no effect as the singularity has infinite mass!I mean,**infinity minus something is still infinity**! A rather stupid question, but please clear my doubt!2) Secondly, is the singularity in the centre of a proton sized black hole exactly similar to the singularity in the centre of a super massive black hole?

Answers would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
