From a wiki's vis-viva equation page, it is given that the specific angular momentum h is also equal to the following:

h = wr^2 = ab * n

How can ab * n be derived to be equal to the angular momentum using elliptical orbit energy/momentum/other equations without having to use calculus or equations involving eccentricity?
