Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The angle between the line of eccentricity and the axis will always be less than 45° for an ellipse but greater than 45° for a hyperbola. As the eccentricity approaches zero the ellipse becomes more circular, only when the eccentricity unity is the curve of a parabola, when the eccentricity rises over unity the curve becomes a hyperbola and the higher the eccentricity the straighter the curve becomes.
