Creating A Black Hole Larger Than The Galaxy


Black holes are intriguing. One of the few objects in the Universe, we have no idea about. But we do know that black holes are areas with dense gravity. The amount of gravity inside a black hole is insane. Light not being able to escape the Black hole’s pull is enough to explain that.

Black holes are some of the strangest and most fascinating objects in outer space.

That is what we know.

But ‘What if’, you could create a Black Hole?

Fascinating! Right?

Theoretically, if you could ever produce a sound of around 1100 decibels, it would generate so high amounts of energy that it would act as an immensely high quantity of mass.

This would, in turn, create enough gravity to form an extremely large black hole! Larger than our observable universe.

I know you must be thinking why the firecrackers, or bombs, or earth quakes don’t create smaller black holes given the fact that they produce sounds in excess of 100 decibels!

Well, with Decibels, if you think 80 dB is loud, 83 is twice as loud, and 86 is twice as loud as that! So when you go from a nice normal sound like, say, 50 dB to 1100 dB, you have a difference of 1050 dB. That’s 350 increases of 3 dB. So you’re looking at a difference in energy on the order of 2350 times the energy. That’s about 200,000 googol (i.e. 200,000 * 10100; a 2 with 105 zeroes after it).

That is why when you increase the volume on your television by 1 or 2 points, it goes from inaudible to irritably loud.

The loudest sound that has ever been produced on Earth was recorded in 1883, when the Krakatoa eruption ejected more than 25 cubic kilometres of rock, ash, and pumice and generated the loudest sound historically reported at 180 Decibels. It was so loud that it was heard in places 3,000 miles (4,800 km) away.
