will light bend when it reach in front of a black hole??????
directly from a black hole said:If the light was shone directly FROM a black hole wouldn't the light actually bend right back into the black hole since nothing can escape a black hole not even light?
In a manner of speaking yes. Photons travel on what are celled null geodesics and geodesics are a generalisation straight lines in euclidean space.I was wondering, even though it appears that light bends, is it actually going in a straight line?
