I'm trying to find the relationship between angular momentum and orbital eccentricity but so far I haven't really found anything. I did find an indirect relationship, though, which looked like it should come out to,[tex]L=\sqrt{\frac{a(1-e^{2})}{m_{1}+m_{2}}},[/tex] but I may be completely wrong. Anyone know the correct answer?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
