OrbitalElementsTryConvertTrueAnomalyToTimeUntilNextPeriapsis Method

Tries to convert the true anomaly to the time of flight until the next 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 TryConvertTrueAnomalyToTimeUntilNextPeriapsis(
	double trueAnomaly,
	double radiusOfPeriapsis,
	double eccentricity,
	double gravitationalParameter,
	out double timeUntilNextPeriapsis
)

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.
timeUntilNextPeriapsis
Type: SystemDouble
On return, the time until the next 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 positive or zero or if the trueAnomaly is not within the valid range for the type of orbit, otherwise .
