Can the sun become a black hole?
That is unlikely. Stars the mass of our Sun will eventually become white dwarves. It requires a larger mass than that of our Sun to become a neutron star, and even more mass to become a black hole. So, unless our Sun acquires a LOT more mass (by some matter that falls into the Sun), it won't become a black hole.
No, the sun cannot become a black hole. Our local star has insufficient mass to be a candidate for that fate.

A black hole is most often made made when a large enough star supernovas and then collapses in on itself. Our sun will probably not become a black hole when it dies, it's too …small. A star (neutron-degenerate) that creates a black hole has to be at least 3x more massive than our sun. Most likely when our sun dies it will just create a white dwarf then a brown or black dwarf (mass but no light is given off.)
Our Sun will never become a black hole. It does not have enough mass and thus pressure to initial the sequences required to form a black hole. In about 5 billion years time…, our Sun will slowly expand into a red giant, a billion years later it will shed it's outer envelope leaving nothing more that a very hot white dwarf about the size of the Earth. Not that we will be around to see it.
no the sun is to small. the sun would have to be at the very least 2 to 3 times larger than it is right now. it will just expand taking out mercury venus earth and possibly ma…rs then become a white dwarf
The Sun of this solar system should not become a black hole as it is too small. Only much larger stars are likely to become black holes. The Sun will more likely expand into a… red giant.
It probably won't ever become a black hole, unless for some reason a lot of additional matter falls on the Sun. Stars the mass of our Sun become white dwarves after they run o…ut of fuel.
It isn't big enough.
No. You will not be swallowed by the black hole but you still wouldnot survive for very long. If the sun become a black hole it wouldretain the same mass, so the orbits of the… planets would remain thesame. It is only within the former radius of the sun that gravitywould be unusually strong. The problem is that the new black holesun would no longer give off any heat or light. No light means nophotosynthesis; the plants we depend on for food would die. No heatmeans Earth would freeze, eventually becoming colder than Pluto. You have nothing to worry about in this regard, though, because thesun is nowhere near massive enough to create a black hole.
It cannot. The sun does not have enough mass to form a black hole.When it runs out of fuel an dies it will form a dense remnantcalled a white dwarf. Only stars 25 times the ma…ss of the sun ormore have strong enough gravity for their cores to collapse all theway to a black hole.
No, it doesn't have enough gravity and it is too small.
The sun cannot become a black hole because it is too small. Black holes are formed when the core of a dying star becomes so dense it can't support its own weight. It then coll…apses on itself, forming a black hole. When our sun dies, the core will not be dense enough to collapse, so it will cool to a white dwarf. As a dimly shining speck of light, the white dwarf will burn all of the sun's remaining fuel until it completely burns out and becomes a cold, lightless black dwarf.
Our Sun is not massive enough to become a Blackhole. It is generally believed that a Star 18 to 30 times more dense than our Sun would be able to create a Blackhole upon its d…eath. Stars that go Super Nova are believed to be the birthing ground of black holes. This topic is still debatable as there is no definitive proof one way or the other. for more information on the source of blackholes try the related source link below
10 to 20 times larger
good question,the sun will never form a black hole since it is so tiny compared to other very large stars,only very large stars will form black holes,but our star no it will n…ot,indeed instead of becoming a black hole it will become a planetary nebula but still it will destroy earth and all inner planets bye expanding into a red giant
Our own sun will not become a black hole simply because it isn't massive enough. For a black hole to form, a star needs to be at least 3x the mass of our sun.
If the sun suddenly became a black hole ... without any change in its mass ... then, first of all, we wouldn't know about it for about 8 minutes. After that time passed, t…he daytime side of the Earth would suddenly go dark, and wherever the moon happened to be at the time, it would also disappear from view, since there would no longer be any light shining on it. Similarly, anybody watching any of the planets or asteroids at the time would see them disappear from view one at a time ... the nearer ones first, then the farther ones. After that, nothing much would change for a while ... it would just stay dark everywhere on Earth. But after a short time, we would begin to notice that it was definitely getting chilly, and that would be the thing that would pretty much tell us that 'this is it'. We might prolong the agony for a while by staying inside shelter and burning our fuel supply for heat and light, but that couldn't last very long. With no sunlight to grow any food or to maintain a survivable environment, it would be 'curtains' sooner or later. If you expected some gory description of getting sucked into the hole and dying, there's no reason to think that. The black hole has some mass, just like it had when it was a shining star. The Earth is still in orbit around it, and there's no reason for any of that to change. Black holes don't reach out and grab things.
