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)
public static bool TryConvertTrueAnomalyToTimeUntilNextPeriapsis(
	double trueAnomaly,
	double radiusOfPeriapsis,
	double eccentricity,
	double gravitationalParameter,
	out double timeUntilNextPeriapsis


Type: SystemDouble
The true anomaly (radians).
Type: SystemDouble
The radius of periapsis.
Type: SystemDouble
The eccentricity of the orbit.
Type: SystemDouble
The gravitational parameter of the central body being orbited.
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 .
