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 moon fit in a black hole?

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

# How are the black hole and the sun related?

Because a black hole forms from the supernova of a sun.

# Are there black holes on the sun?

There are no black holes but there are dark areas known as Sun spots.

# Can a black hole swallow the sun?

Yes it is possible but very unlikey

# How does the sun become 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

# Can your sun into a black hole?

Our sun currently has insufficient mass to form a black hole.Astronomers instead anticipate the sun will end its life as a whitedwarf.

# How far is the black hole from the sun?

Assuming you are referring to the supermassive black hole which is thought to be at the center of our own galaxy, the distance is estimated to be between 24,500 and 27,300 lig

# Can the sun cause a black hole?

No. Our Sun isn't massive enough to become a black hole. Only stars greater than three solar masses can become black holes.

# How can sun become a black hole?

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

# Do black hole suck the sun?

In theory, yes, a black hole could suck up the sun.

# How does a sun turn into a black hole?

a sun is a mass of helium and hydrogen. when a sun gets too old, the gravity of itself gradually pulls the star into itself, making it infinitely small. the gravity gets stron

# Can a black hole consume a sun?

In a sense - Yes; a sun can be overtly attracted into a black hole's gravitational field of influence. However the wording of this question reflects another inappropriate use

# What are black holes in the sun?

These are called sun spots .

# How is the sun and a black hole different?

The sun is a star; a black hole is (often) a stellar remnant. Thesun maintains its shape from the outward thermal pressure fromfusion processes in its core to balance against

# Why can the sun not turn into a black hole?

Simply because it is not massive enough. A star needs to have a mass that's at least 3 times that of our own sun to turn into a black hole.

# 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 thana mile across.
