Once the radius of the newly found planet has been calculated, the density of the planet can then be calculated, DENSITY=MASS/VOLUME (4/3 pi r^2), these properties are necessary for determining whether the planet would be sufficient to support life. The orbital radius dictates the surface temperature of the planet. If the radius is too small then the surface temperature is too hot, if the radius is too hot, then the surface temperature is too cold....
