OrbitalElementsTryConvertEccentricAnomalyToTimeFromPeriapsis Method

Tries to convert the eccentric 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 bool TryConvertEccentricAnomalyToTimeFromPeriapsis(
	double eccentricAnomaly,
	double radiusOfPeriapsis,
	double eccentricity,
	double gravitationalParameter,
	out double timeFromPeriapsis
)

Parameters

eccentricAnomaly
Type: SystemDouble
The eccentric 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.
timeFromPeriapsis
Type: SystemDouble
On return, the time since the last periapsis passage.

Return Value

Type: Boolean
if the eccentricity is negative or greater than or equal to one or radiusOfPeriapsis or gravitationalParameter is negative or zero, otherwise .
