dA/dt is constant as per Kepler's second Law.Theta to time t relation
is through Jacobi Elliptic integrals(Newton's differential equation of
planetary motion,not in terms of elementary functions).
(* Combine two equations 1) r^2 d theta = 2 dA ; 2) p/r = (1 +
ec*Cos[theta[A]]). Simplify output of Dsolve with Boundary Condns theta
= 0, A = 0 *)
p = 1 ; ec = .7071;
EQ = {theta'[A] == 2 ((1 + ec*Cos[theta[A]] )/p) ^2, theta[0] == 0} ;
NDSolve [EQ, theta, {A, 0, 10}]
TH[u_] = theta[u] /. First[%]
Plot[TH[A], {A, 0, 10}]
Clear[p, ec];
eq = {theta'[A] == 2 ((1 + ec*Cos[theta[A]] )/p) ^2} ;
DSolve [eq, theta, A];
