There is a formula for finding the mass of a black hole that uses the (apparent) circumference of an orbit of an object travelling at less than the speed of light, the velocity, and the period of the orbit. I can't lay my hands on it right now, but I've read it in the library and wrote it down here, somewhere. . . Anyone?

: Does anybody know the mass of a black hole or where I could find the data
