    Equation arranging.

    Another wierd question.
    The following formula may be used to study planetary motion.

    GmM/R^2=m4pi^2R/T^2. (Hope its not too confusing)

    Make T the subject of the equation.
    Thanks eveyone for the help.

    \frac{GmM}{R^2}=\frac{m4\pi^2R}{T^2}
    T^2=\frac{m4\pi^2R^3}{GmM}
    T=\sqrt{\frac{m4\pi^2R^3}{GmM}}
    T=2\pi\sqrt{\frac{mR^3}{GM}}
