    E is between the given range (that u wrote) is for elliptical orbits and also the expression that u write in last for E ,must follow the range ( as that range is general condition ...

    hope u will get me, if not ,do let me know...
  • Mahak thankyou
    here which we calculate that is general expression of energy which is always constant for all orbits but in elliptical orbit energy range is between -mk^2/2l^2

    what's your doubt
  • Ruby negi thankyou
    see, energy is fixed for circular orbit but that doesn't mean circle of particular radius is fixed, u can see in the formula of energy for circular orbit, J ( in denominator) depen...
