Hawking Radiation and Black Hole Thermodynamics
I don't understand the logic behind this concept.
Can somebody here make this concept simple to aid my acceptance of it.
All particles have positive energy. Both the electron and the positron have an energy of 512KeV. At particle pair creation or annihilation of an electron/positron pair, positive energy of 1.24KeV is required. When a black hole radiates an electron through Hawking radiation, it absorbs a positron that has positive energy. The accepted theory says that the black hole absorbs a particle that has negative energy which reduces its mass. Herein lies my confusion. Is negative energy and positive energy the same thing: identical, or does some process change negative energy into positive energy?
I think that the issue that confuses me can be found here
When particles are produced in LENR through Hawking radiation, there is no time issues caused by extreme gravity effects involved and all particle energies are positive.
