Greetings everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am having difficulties grasping the polar form of the ellipse equation, and there seems to be more than one way to express an ellipse in this form, if I am not mistaken. For example on the following webpage http://farside.ph.utexas.edu/teaching/301/lectures/node155.html the ellipse is represented in a different way than I am accustomed. How can I convert this into other forms?

Thanks
