The experimental velocity found from the animation was the time it took to complete a full rotation divided by the circumference which is radius times 2pi. When I fit this on Logger Pro, I obtained a coefficient that was supposed to be equal to (GM p / R m )^.5. So squaring the coefficient and then multiplying by R m and then dividing by G gave me M p....
