**Abstract:**

It is known that the Hawking-Bekenstein theory about black holes contains two basic equations. One of the equations is that of Bekenstein (1972) which correlates the surface of the horizon of a black hole to the mass of a black hole. Specifically, the surface is proportional to the square of the mass.
The other equation is Hawking’s (1971) which connects the temperature of the horizon of a black hole with the mass. Temperature is inversely proportional to mass. These theories correlate fundamental theories of physics: the general relativity theory (not completely proven, due to our
ignorance about gravity), quantum, thermodynamic and mechanical theory.
