Black Hole Radiation

    Was just curious as to if this equation on wikipedia was accurate.

    The link on wiki states

    So what I'm wondering is, exactly what units would P or rather the energy outflow be represented as. I was thinking joules, but for some reason couldn't get all the units to cancel out, which is probably just a mistake on my part. Anyway, anyone have any thoughts or input on this subject?

    The units in the formula match for watt (joules per second).
