|Description:||Calculates the time-to-fall in a plunge orbit (eccentricity=. The zip file contains two programs. PLUNGE1 requires input values for the initial separation where two objects are at mutual rest, and for the separation between those same objects at two subsequent times prior to contact. The code calculates the amount of time to fall from the initial separation to each of the subsequent positions, and then it calculates the time difference; i.e. the amount of time to fall from the first subsequent position to the second subsequent position. PLUNGE2 requires input values for an observed separation and for an observed radial velocity (in approach) for that separation, and for a final separation. The initial distance is calculated using the Vis Viva equation. Then the amount of time required to fall from the initial separation to the observed separation is calculated. Next, the amount of time required to fall from the initial separation to the final separation is calculated. Finally the time difference required to fall from the observed position to the final position is found by subtraction.|
