A Black Hole Exerts a Gravitational Pull Same As Other Objects Of Same Mass

It is important to realize that a black hole’s gravitational field is the same as that of any other object in space of the same mass. In other words, it won’t “suck” objects in any more than any other normal star. If our Sun were replaced with a black hole of equal mass, for example, the Earth would continue experiencing the same gravitational force as before. Only when objects get too close to the black hole’s event horizon, would the stronger gravitational force become apparent (simply because at any given radius, the black hole has significantly larger mass than any other object).
