The Schwartzchild Radius for a BH= R = GM/c^2. You really only need to know : within what radius is a given amount of mass contained. If this is less than the Schwartzchild radius (R_{s}) then it is a BH. Ie If you compress any amount of matter enough it will become a BH of an arbitrarily small radius. The only limit may be the planck length, because the physics of General Relativity breaks down at this point
