Conservation of energy states that the sum of the kinetic energy and the potential energy remains constant 0 = V 2 GM 2 r

From Keplers Law (this is derived from conservation of angular momentum). rp vp = ra va where ra = radius at apoapsis and rp at periapsis

From Keplers Law (this is derived from conservation of angular momentum). rp vp = ra va where ra = radius at apoapsis and rp at periapsis At the two points, apogee and perigee of the orbit, we have conservation of energy PE1 + KE1 = PE2 + KE2
