Ok just a quick question(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

trying to work out the orbital period of an asteroid around the sun which has an orbital period 4times that of the earth which is 1.5*10^11m

i worked out the radius of the asteroid to be 6*10^11 but cant find the equation for the orbital period.

Does anyone know it?

thanks
