OrbitalElementsTryConvertTrueAnomalyToTimeFromPeriapsis Method

True to convert the true 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 TryConvertTrueAnomalyToTimeFromPeriapsis(
	double trueAnomaly,
	double radiusOfPeriapsis,
	double eccentricity,
	double gravitationalParameter,
	out double timeFromPeriapsis
)

Parameters

trueAnomaly
Type: SystemDouble
The true 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 radiusOfPeriapsis or gravitationalParameter is negative or zero or if the trueAnomaly is not within the valid range for the type of orbit, otherwise .
