- Homework Statement:
- How can i know that the orbit represented by the equation is symmetric with respect to two points?

- Relevant Equations:
- I will post an image below so it doesn't get confused

How can i know the resulting orbit of
is symmetric about two turning points?

Where m, l is constant.

V is function of r

u = 1/r

and

It is in polar coordinates.

We could show that varying theta from 0 to -θ will be the same if we vary 0 to Θ, but i don't know where to start
