Based on the exponential growth of time dilation 0.0 - 1.0 if given the radius of an object how do you calculate the mass of the object?

Time dilation is a function of gravity. Which can be thought of as escape velocity from a gravitational field. So if you have to achieve .866 c to escape. Then the time dilation would be 1.99 years for every one year on earth.

using 1/(sqrt(1-(.866^2)/(1^2)))

Now that I have that and if given the radius of the object how do I calculate the mass of the object if keeping the time dilation the same?

The time dilation range is (0.1 - 1.0) = (1.005037815 - infinty)

*this is not homework I'm just trying to scratch an itch
