Homework Statement


How do you calculate the mass from slope of a line T^2 on y axis and 1/f on x axis??



Homework Equations


4π^2mr/fc


The Attempt at a Solution


I don't know how to attempt this. I have a data table and the graph has y=0.7385x-0.0254.
Obviously 0.7385 is the slope but I do not know what to use to get the mass.
