Doesn't the fact that elementary particles are not black holes prove they are not point structures? [duplicate]

De Schwarzschild radius of a mass $m$ is defined as $$r_s=\frac{2mG}{c^2}(m).$$ So if we insert in this formula the mass of an electron (a point particle, according to mainstream physics), which ...

Elementary particle and Gravitational fields

Does an elementary particle that doesn't interact with gravity, just like how dark matter doesn't interact with EM radiation, exist? If so could this particle go in and out of Black holes without ...

If a black hole is made by a hypothetical particle above Planck mass and it has angular momentum will it be a ring Kerr black hole? [duplicate]

If a single subatomic hypothetical fundamental particle incapable of decay (such as an electron) with a mass exceeding Planck mass possessed angular momentum and it collapsed into a black hole, would ...

With point particles being smaller than their Schwarzschild radius are they forever cloaked in a black hole?

My understanding of point particles is that they have mass and are dimensionless. If this is so then wouldn't the mass cause the particle to have a Schwarzschild radius which would then make the ...

Are Black Holes Huge Elementary Particles? [closed]

Elementary particles are defined as particles having no internal structure - or at least none that we know. But we don't know, and maybe can never know, the internal structure of a black hole. So ...

Black Holes: Are “elementary” particles just decomposing into sub-particles that we don't yet understand? [closed]

You often hear that black holes are so strong in their gravitational pull that matter, even light cannot escape. But this seems to contradict the laws of conservation of energy. Is it possible that ...
