OrbitalElementsComputeTimeOfFlight Method

Calculates the time of flight between two true anomalies.

Namespace:  AGI.Foundation.Coordinates
Assembly:  AGI.Foundation.Core (in AGI.Foundation.Core.dll) Version: 18.4.397.0 (18.4.397.0)
Syntax
public static double ComputeTimeOfFlight(
	double initialTrueAnomaly,
	double finalTrueAnomaly,
	double radiusOfPeriapsis,
	double eccentricity,
	double gravitationalParameter
)

Parameters

initialTrueAnomaly
Type: SystemDouble
The initial true anomaly (radians).
finalTrueAnomaly
Type: SystemDouble
The final true anomaly (radians).
radiusOfPeriapsis
Type: SystemDouble
The radius of periapsis (distance).
eccentricity
Type: SystemDouble
The eccentricity of the orbit.
gravitationalParameter
Type: SystemDouble
The gravitational parameter (distance cubed per time squared).

Return Value

Type: Double
The time of flight (time).
Exceptions
ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeExceptionThrown if the eccentricity is negative or radiusOfPeriapsis or gravitationalParameter is negative or zero or if the initialTrueAnomaly or initialTrueAnomaly are not within the valid range for the type of orbit, otherwise .
