It depends. First, we need to figure how to measure the size of a black hole. For these purposes we will use the size event horizon. The problem is that size varies with the mass of the black hole. The smallest known black holes are about 3 times the mass of the sun with event horizons about 5 miles in radius, which gives a volume of about 520 cubic miles.The sun is about 460,000 miles in radius which gives a volume of about 4.1*10^17 (410 quadrillion) cubic miles. BY a simple volumetric ration you cold fit 780 trillion such black holes into the sun. The problem here, is that in such a circumstance the black holes would become a single black hole of 2.3 quadrillion solar masses, with an event horizon about 490 light years across.
The largest known black hole is about 12 billion times the mass of the sun with an event horizon 44 billion miles across, far larger than the sun and several times larger than the orbit of Pluto.

# Can the sun 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.

# Can the moon fit in a black hole?

heck ya the biggest one is large enough to swallow the one beside it

# Can black hole suck the sun?

Sure, if it gets close enough, it might. By the way, any other object of sufficient mass could also "suck" the Sun if it gets close enough.\n Sure, if it gets close enough, i

# What is a black hole on the sun called?

First of all, there cannot be a black hole on the sun because it's  to small, but technically speaking a star which is massive enough  for it's core to collapse and form a b

# Can the sun be turned into a black hole?

it is possible but the chances are unlikely. most likely it will turn in into a black dwarf and die in 2 million years

# Can our sun become a black hole?

No, it doesn't have enough gravity and it is too small.

# Is the sun bigger then a black hole?

Black holes can be many different sizes. Therefore, there are some black holes that are bigger than the sun, and there are some that are smaller than the sun.

# Can the sun get sucked in a black hole?

The Sun could - if a black hole stayed too close to the Sun. However, the Sun will not be sucked. The closest black hole is about 1,600 light years away.

# What if the sun became a black hole?

We would all die. There would be no sun, no light, so all the  plants would die, so animals would die, we would have no food and  starve. Solar power would not be available.

# Is sun going to be a black hole?

No, it's not. This is because the sun simply is not massive enough to become one. In order for a star to become a black hole, it's mass needs to be greater than about 3 solar

# How many black holes do the sun have?

Unless you are referring to sunspots, the sun itself has no black holes.

# How many black holes diameter can fit in a mile?

The event horizon of any stellar mass black hole would be more than  a mile across.

# Are there any black holes in the sun?

No. The apparent dark areas on the sun are not black holes; they  are sunspots. Sunspots are areas of the sun's surface that are not  as hot as their surroundings.

# How many earths can you fit in a super massive black hole?

It depends on the mass of the black hole. and what you are fitting  the Earths into. Supermassive black holes range from about 1  million to 12 billion times the mass of the

# What do you mean by black hole in the sun?

Our sun is not massive enough to have a black hole in its center, or to form one when it eventually dies and collapses. You may be thinking of the current belief that all or v

# How many things are between the black hole and the sun?

Your question can't be answered in the way you wrote it.  Astrophysicists think there's a massive black hole at the centre of  our Milky Way galaxy, and they've spotted thin
