EllipsoidSurfaceNormalMotion Method (MotionCartesian, Int32)

Converts the motion given in terms of a surface point to motion of the surface normal vector.

Namespace:  AGI.Foundation.Geometry.Shapes
Assembly:  AGI.Foundation.Core (in AGI.Foundation.Core.dll) Version: 24.1.418.0 (24.1.418.0)
public Motion<UnitCartesian, Cartesian> SurfaceNormalMotion(
	Motion<Cartesian> surfaceMotion,
	int order


Type: AGI.FoundationMotionCartesian
The motion of the surface point.
Type: SystemInt32
The order of the highest derivative to convert. To convert just the position, pass 0 for this value. To convert velocity as well, pass 1.

Return Value

Type: MotionUnitCartesian, Cartesian
The motion of the surface normal vector.
The surfaceMotion must be in a fixed reference frame centered on the center of mass of this ellipsoid and must be the motion of a surface point.
