(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

"Given that a black hole emits black body radiation at a temperature (in degrees Kelvin) given by T = hc^{3}/16pi^{2}MGk, how long would it take a solar mass black hole to evaporate?

If small black holes were created during the big bang, what mass of black hole would now be evaporating? "

2. Relevant equations

This problem was set as part of my first year undergrad "Professional Skills Problem Solving" seminar. So I have to use first year undergrad physics concepts (or possibly more advanced tools) to solve this problem.

3. The attempt at a solution

No idea! That's why I'm here.

Thanks in advance for any help!
