Homework Help: Maple demonstration of kepler law

  1. Apr 19, 2014 #1

    I have been trying to do an assignment for one of my physics class. We are trying to demonstrate the planetary motion using Kepler's law. I have been trying to solve a integral. I was able to solve it using maple. I am trying to solve equation 29 in attached figure. I got equation 31 after integration and simplification.

    My question from this equation, how do I evaluate this so that I can get answer as a conic section in polar coordinates. I assume the solution I got is correct as I am getting a desired plot. Please suggest me.

    Thank You
