relative to the origin.
___
Use the following equation to calculate the angular velocity.
Here, v is the linear velocity and r is the radius of orbit.
Comment
Step 2 of 2
Calculate the angular velocity of the line joining the two identical masses.
The gravitational force between the two identical masses of m separated at a distance of d is,
The two masses are identical, so their center of mass should be equal to the half of their distance
d, that is,
So, the two bodies can move in circular path with the above radius.
The equation for the centripetal force is,
Here, m is the mass of the object,
is the angular velocity and r is the radius of the orbital path.
The gravitational force must be equal to the centripetal force to move the two bodies in circular
path.
Substitute
for r in above equation.
Therefore, the angular velocity of the line joining the two identical masses is

The eccentricity vector, e, can be found from the position vector, r, the angular momentum
vector, h, velocity vector, v, and the gravitation parameter of the object being orbited, μ.
Comment
Step 2 of 2
For rectilinear orbits, the angular momentum, h is 0. This lets the eccentricity vector, e, be
rewritten in terms of a unit vector in the direction of the position, ur.
Now substitute the eccentricity vector, e, into the formula for the magnitude of the eccentricity, e.
Therefore, the eccentricity is 1 for rectilinear orbits.
