							This is simple if you assume circular motion. The acceleration of gravity from the central body must be exactly equal to the centripetal acceleration required for the circular orbit:

GM/r^2 = v^2 / r
v = sqrt(GM/r) ... orbital speed v in terms of G, M=mass of central body, r=radius of orbit
The period is the time it takes to travel the distance 2*pi*r around the circle at speed v.

So time period T = 2 pi r / v
T = 2 pi r /sqrt(GM/r)
