: At the event horizon any mass cannot escape,this got me thinking.. : There must be another point where any mass (if no other force acts upon it) will end up in the Black hole even if this takes billions of years-is there a way to calculate this distance??

Outside the event horizon, the black hole's influence is gravity - infinite range, with the usual inverse square law (once you get a reasonable distance away, so the relativistic effect is neglible).
