## In context|physics|lang=en terms the difference between spacetime and singularity

is that

**spacetime** is (physics) an

*n''-dimensional continuum consisting of dimensions of both space & time normally spacetime is considered as having 4 dimensions (''x'', ''y'', ''z'', ''t *), but higher-dimensional spacetimes are often encountered in theoretical physics, eg the 5-dimensional spacetime of kaluza-klein theory or the 11 dimensions of spacetime in m-theory while

**singularity** is (physics) a point or region in spacetime in which gravitational forces cause matter to have an infinite density; associated with black holes.

## As nouns the difference between **spacetime** and **singularity**

is that

**spacetime** is (uncountable|physics) the four-dimensional continuum of the three spatial dimensions plus time while

**singularity** is the state of being singular, distinct, peculiar, uncommon or unusual.
