Kepler's law and Planetary Motion:

Kepler’s Laws of Planetary Motion

(1) The law of Orbits : Every planet moves around the sun in an elliptical orbit with sun at one of the foci.

(2) The law of Area : It is similar to law of conservation of angular momentum.

r1 =  Shortest distance of planet from sun (perigee).

r2 = Largest distance of planet from sun (apogee).
