Description

V2790 Ori is a W Uma Eclipsing Binary with an orbital period of 0.28784200 day. From the previous investigation of its light curve, it was found that this binary system has a continuous orbital period change. In this research, new photometric B V and R light curves have been obtained to compute time of minimum light. Using the previously published time of minima and the value obtained in this research, an O - C curve of V2790 Ori was constructed. It was found that, this curve trends toward a downward parabolic variation. The result reveals that the orbital period of V2790 Ori there was a decrease in the rate $9.81954433 \times 10^{-6}$ seconds per year to $4.263948685 \times 10^{-6}$ seconds per year.
