ratio of the maximum angular velocity to the minimum angular velocity of the particle

in its orbit is n, then show that the eccentricity of the orbit is

[tex]

\epsilon = \frac{\sqrt{n}-1}{\sqrt{n}+1}[/tex]

Not sure where to go with this. I tried finding total energy and angular momentum in terms of max/min angular velocity and radius but can't get anywhere
