Find the value of m
$3Fv=\frac{mv^2}{r}$

$3Frv=mv^2$

$\frac{3Frv}{v^2} =m$

$\frac{3Fr}{v} = m$

Find the value of m
First multiply both sides by r to clear the denominator on the right side. That gives you mv^2=3Fvr

Then, you can divide by v^2 to isolate m, giving you m=3Fvr/v^2

You can then clean it up by getting rid of the v on top, since v/v^2=1/v
