Hi All
AoA
I need help on Derivation of equation of ellips and hyperbola.

Any article, site regarding my question plz??
Thanx
Usman

Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "ellipse hyperbola equations" to get these possible sources:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ellipse
http://www.schillerinstitute.org/fid_02-06/2006/061-2_375_Kepler.html

I hope it helps. Thanks for asking.
