# After the big-bang, tiny black holes may have formed. If one with a mass of #1 x 10^11 kg# (and a radius of only #1 x 10^-16 m#) reached Earth, at what distance from your head would its gravitational pull on you match that of the Earth's?

Your head would need to be about 0.82 metres from the black hole to experience 1g.

The speed at which you would accelerate is:

Therefore, the distance needed to feel 1 g of acceleration is:

By the way, a black hole's Schwarzschild radius can be found using:

To find the distance from your head where the gravitational pull of the tiny black hole would match that of Earth's, you can use the equation for gravitational force:

(F = \frac{{G \cdot m_1 \cdot m_2}}{{r^2}})

Where: (F) is the gravitational force, (G) is the gravitational constant ((6.674 \times 10^{-11} , \text{m}^3 , \text{kg}^{-1} , \text{s}^{-2})), (m_1) and (m_2) are the masses of the two objects, (r) is the distance between the centers of the two objects.

For Earth, (m_1) is the mass of the Earth ((5.972 \times 10^{24} , \text{kg})), and for the tiny black hole, (m_2) is (1 \times 10^{11} , \text{kg}). Let (d) be the distance from your head to the tiny black hole.

Setting the gravitational forces equal to each other:

(\frac{{G \cdot m_{\text{Earth

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

- What is the chemistry of a black hole?
- If the law of physics that determines maximum density of matter is broken during the initial creation of a black hole, then shouldn't all laws of physics be invalidated within the event horizon (Schwarzschild radius) of a black hole?
- How do you measure the parallax angle of a star?
- Why do astronauts in space experience less gravitational force than they do on earth?
- How great must the force of gravity be to bend light in space? For example, does light crossing near the centre of our galaxy get refracted? Or would it require a much stronger force?
