OrbitalElementsTryConvertTrueAnomalyToTimeSincePreviousPeriapsis Method

Tries to convert the true anomaly to the time of flight since the previous periapsis passage in seconds. The value returned is positive and, for closed orbits, periodic.

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 TryConvertTrueAnomalyToTimeSincePreviousPeriapsis(
	double trueAnomaly,
	double radiusOfPeriapsis,
	double eccentricity,
	double gravitationalParameter,
	out double timeSincePreviousPeriapsis
)

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.
timeSincePreviousPeriapsis
Type: SystemDouble
On return, the time since the previous periapsis passage.

Return Value

Type: Boolean
if the eccentricity is negative or radiusOfPeriapsis or gravitationalParameter is negative or zero or if the orbit is open (parabolic or hyperbolic) and the trueAnomaly is negative or zero or if the trueAnomaly is not within the valid range for the type of orbit, otherwise .
