IersTechnicalNote36RelativisticCorrectionForceScaledAngularVelocityAngularMomentumPerUnitMass Method

A static helper method that computes a CentralBodyAngularMomentumPerUnitMass vector for the input centralBody. This method computes the rotational velocity between the central body's fixed and inertial frames. This vector is then normalized and the magnitude is set to the input scale factor. An appropriate scale factor for the Earth, for example, would be 9.8e8 m^2/s as was cited in "IERS Conventions (2010)".

Namespace:  AGI.Foundation.Celestial
