spaghettification equation https://errordactyl.wordpress.com

Where:

mp mass of the nearest and furthest part of the falling object (they are equal)
m1 mass of the body (black hole) towards which the falling object is falling.
rn distance of the nearest part of the falling object from the black hole
rn + x distance of the furthest part of the falling object from the black hole, where x is the object’s length in the direction pointing towards the black hole.
Fn gravitational force on the nearest part of the falling object
Ff gravitational force on the furthest part of the falling object

That’s the gist of it anyway.
