# How long does a black hole last after it becomes white hot?

According to Stephen Hawking's theory of black holes, once a sufficient mass has been lost through evaporation, the escape velocity $3 \times 10^8$ meters per second so light is able to escape from the black hole and due to the massive energy it would be white hot. The rate of evaporation after that would be much greater as the mass is significantly less. But how long would it last? Given it's a perfectly round singularity and has a set mass we should be able to calculate it, but have we?

• you got a -1 from somebody because the term "white hole" has a definite meaning in physics. Have a look. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_hole . I edited out the contradiction – anna v May 20 '15 at 10:35
• The title still has "white hole" in a misleading way. – MBN May 20 '15 at 13:45
• @MBN must have been a glitch in my editing. corrected it – anna v Oct 1 '19 at 6:23

$$T = \frac{5120\pi G^2}{\hbar c^4}M^3$$
