# If you swallowed a black hole the size of a marble would it punch through you causing massive internal damage or would it consume you?

The radius of a marble is about 7mm. A black hole with a radius of 7mm will have a mass on the order of 10^24 kg. That is about 100 times the mass of the moon.

The tidal force (differential in acceleration between two points) at the event horizon of the 7mm black hole will be an incredible 10^21 m/s² across a length of 1 meter. You will be instantly spaghettified and become part of the black hole.

It would crush you once you get near it. Learn physics.

Te consumiría. De hecho, no sería capaz de tragárselo a tiempo para que eso suceda.

It would consume you. In fact you wouldn't be able to swallow it in time for that to happen.

You'd be spaghettified.

Pesonally, I think it would be much more fun to go to "Giuseppe's Casa" restaurant and spaghettify yourself with a generous serve of something on his menu, with napoli sauce for example. To be enjoyed with a nice Chianti, of course.

A black hole the size of a marble would consume you long before you could entertain consuming a black hole!

If a black hole had the mass of a marble you would not be able to get near it as the hawking radiation intensifies exponentially as it gets smaller. Anything within a horrifyingly large radius of this black hole would be bombarded with gamma radiation, so you would die long before you reached it, and you wouldn't be able to attempt to swallow it. Nothing you would wear could block this radiation since it penetrates through everything.

Actually, Hawking radiation will be quite small. Temperature will be just .02 degrees K with correspondingly benign photons.

you couldn't even get near one this size without it ripping you to pieces, and absorbing the pieces.

As an FYI - lest we forget an important point - tidal forces decrease with the inverse square of the mass of the black hole. For super massive black holes, tidal forces from head to toe at the event horizon will be quite survivable.
