# Do black holes have infinite gravitational pull?

## Do black holes have infinite gravitational pull?

A black hole has an infinite density; since its volume is zero, it is compressed to the very limit. So it also has infinite gravity, and sucks anything which is near it!

## Why the gravitational force with a black hole in space is so great that not even light can escape?

A black hole is a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light can not get out. The gravity is so strong because matter has been squeezed into a tiny space. Because no light can get out, people can’t see black holes. They are invisible.

Why can’t anything escape the gravitational pull of a black hole?

Answer: Within the event horizon of a black hole space is curved to the point where all paths that light might take to exit the event horizon point back inside the event horizon. Since nothing can travel faster than the speed of light, nothing escapes the event horizon of a black hole.

### Does a black hole have infinite power?

Because some black holes spin, it’s possible to harvest massive amounts of energy from them, even when all other energy sources in the far far future are gone. This process was first proposed by Roger Penrose in a 1971 paper. After the significant startup costs, it’s basically an infinite source of free energy.

### Do black holes crush things?

It is thought that the matter that goes into a black hole gets crushed into a tiny point at the center called a “singularity”. That’s the only place that matter is, so if you were to fall into a black hole you wouldn’t hit a surface as you would with a normal star.

What escapes a black hole?

A black hole can form when enough matter and/or energy is compressed into a volume small enough that the escape velocity is greater than the speed of light. Nothing can travel that fast, so nothing within a distance, proportional to the mass of the black hole, can escape beyond that distance.

## Is the gravity of a black hole infinite?

But it is not infinite. Infalling matter is not accelerated instantly to the speed of light. Black holes have the same external gravity as the masses that formed them, such as a collapsing star.

## What has infinite gravity and why?

Nothing, whether energy or matter actually has or possesses gravity. Gravity is the warping of the fabric of space around objects or toward regions of space, such as black holes. Nothing has or causes infinite gravity because there is no such thing.

What would happen if you got inside a black hole?

If you got into the event horizon, your perception of space and time would entirely change. At the same time, the immense gravity of the black hole would compress you horizontally and stretch you vertically like a noodle, which is why scientists call this phenomenon (no joke) “spaghettification.”
