classical orbital elements of a hyperbolic flyby orbit
This HP Prime program demonstrates how to interact with the fbhyper subroutine which calculates the classical orbital elements of a hyperbolic flyby orbit.
The user provides the x, y and z components of both the incoming and outgoing vinfinity velocity vectors along with the periapsis radius of the flyby orbit and gravitational constant of the flyby planet with statements like the following // gravitational constant of the flyby planet (kilometers^3/seconds^2) LOCAL mu := 324858.599; // incoming vinfinity vector (kilometers/second) vinfi(1) := 2.675356842744762; vinfi(2) := 0.067571880627955; vinfi(3) := 7.018676936018188; // outgoing vinfinity vector (kilometers/second) vinfo(1) := 4.415208588753238; vinfo(2) := 5.192058899284808; vinfo(3) := 3.157910646786967; // periapsis radius of the flyby trajectory (kilometers) rp := 7051.910939; The source code and documentation for this program can be downloaded from https://www.dropbox.com/s/qet7k0dv2qkrhb...r.zip?dl=0
