## Homework Statement

A proton moving at 0.999 of the speed of light orbits a black hole 4362km from the center of the attractor. What is the mass of the black hole?

## Homework Equations

F=(Gm1*m2)/d^2

## The Attempt at a Solution

Assuming the above is correct, a proton I think has constant mass of 1.6726*[(10)^(-27)], I know the distance, and G is constant. Since what I need is mass of black hole I'm assuming there's a way to find the force using the proton's speed.
