OrbitalElementsTryConvertTimeFromPeriapsisToParabolicAnomaly Method

Tries to convert the time from periapsis passage to parabolic anomaly. The value returned is signed and monotonic.

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 TryConvertTimeFromPeriapsisToParabolicAnomaly(
	double timeFromPeriapsis,
	double radiusOfPeriapsis,
	double eccentricity,
	double gravitationalParameter,
	out double parabolicAnomaly
)

Parameters

timeFromPeriapsis
Type: SystemDouble
The time from periapsis passage (time).
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).
parabolicAnomaly
Type: SystemDouble
On return, the parabolic anomaly (radians).

Return Value

Type: Boolean
if the eccentricity is not equal to one (indicating that the orbit is not parabolic) or radiusOfPeriapsis or gravitationalParameter is negative or zero, otherwise .
