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: 23.1.416.0 (23.1.416.0)
public static bool TryConvertTrueAnomalyToTimeSincePreviousPeriapsis(
	double trueAnomaly,
	double radiusOfPeriapsis,
	double eccentricity,
	double gravitationalParameter,
	out double timeSincePreviousPeriapsis


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 since the previous periapsis passage.

Return Value

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