Astronomers can calculate the mass of a planet by using the orbital parameters of one of its moons. Consider a hypothetical planet, which has a hypothetical moon that orbits the planet in a roughly circular orbit with a radius of 3.95*10^8 m. The moon takes 12 Earth days to orbit the planet. What is the mass of the planet?
