Is the gravity force that pulls in stars into a black hole weaker than the strong nuclear force inside the nucleus of an atom?

    Gravity is usually much much weaker than the strong force, and all other forces. But when a star collapses, gravity gets stronger and stronger. It surpasses all other forces and becomes infinite at the singularity.

    Yes, much so.

    Yes. Gravity is the *weakest* of the 4 forces.

    It's a matter of scale. The strong nuclear force is far greater than the gravitational pull between the nuclear particles.

    However, when dealing with thingson a macro level, where black holes theoretically exist, gravity is strong enough to overcome all the other forces that exist.

    I would think gravity would be stronger as it doesn't have to be 'activated'

      How are other forces "activated"?

    Outside the event horizon, the strong force is stronger. Inside, gravity gets stronger and stronger, eventually it is the stronger force.

    regardless of what you think, 'black holes' are STILL just a theory ..................

      What do you define a theory to be? In science, a theory is the most well confirmed piece of knowledge backed up by a mountain of evidence. It is not just a guess. A hypothesis or conjecture is an educated guess.
