OrbitalElementsConvertMeanAnomalyToTimeFromPeriapsis Method

Converts the mean anomaly to the time of flight from the corresponding periapsis passage in seconds. The value returned is signed and monotonic even for periodic orbits.

Namespace:  AGI.Foundation.Coordinates
Assembly:  AGI.Foundation.Core (in AGI.Foundation.Core.dll) Version: 19.1.398.0 (19.1.398.0)
Syntax
public static double ConvertMeanAnomalyToTimeFromPeriapsis(
	double meanAnomaly,
	double radiusOfPeriapsis,
	double eccentricity,
	double gravitationalParameter
)

Parameters

meanAnomaly
Type: SystemDouble
The mean anomaly (radians).
radiusOfPeriapsis
Type: SystemDouble
The radius of periapsis.
eccentricity
Type: SystemDouble
The eccentricity of the orbit.
gravitationalParameter
Type: SystemDouble
The gravitational parameter of the central body being orbited.

Return Value

Type: Double
The time since the last periapsis passage.
Exceptions
ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeExceptionThrown if the eccentricity is negative or radiusOfPeriapsis or gravitationalParameter is negative or zero.
