Is it, by any chance, possible to determine the mass of a star by knowing a) the surface temperature and b) the orbital period of a planetary companion? Provided that the orbital distance of the planet is not known.
The reason I'm asking this is because, as of late, I started contributing to the wiki of the science fiction video game Mass Effect. Part of what I'm doing involves some math.
So, is that possible? If so, please provide the formula. Thanks.
