About Hawking radiation

  1. May 19, 2009 #1
    How exactly is the amount of Hawking radiation emitted by a black hole related to it's mass/Schwarzschild radius/etc? Is there a formula relating the two for instance?

    (I'm trying to calculate the time it would take for one of the LHC black holes that will supposedly destroy the Earth - ad nauseum - to dissipate...)
