This may be a simple question. When using a light meter, the meter gives you the f-stop for correct exposure. Now how many stops down will there be no exposure/black?

According to the zone system 5. But it depends on what format you're shooting... With reversal film, for example, it'd be more like 1.5 stops etc.
