Calculates the orbital height without any formatting.

# Optional Description Default
1 No Period of the orbit in seconds
2 No Mass of central body in kilograms
3 Yes Radius of central body in meters 0
f Yes Factor in which the altitude should be shown. Available values: None (m), k (km), M (Mm), G (Gm). If the radius was given kilometers it uses the factor k. None
b Yes Uses the sidereal rotation period, mass and radius as default from the given body. Can be overwritten. Not set (makes the first three parameters mandatory)
pf Yes Multiplies the period with this value. Useful to easily calculate semi-synchronous orbits (pf=1/2 then). 1
