The movement of a material point along curves of the second order is represented by the kinematic equation (1.10). The kinematics of second order curves is studied on an ellipse. Formulas for the dependence of acceleration and radius, speed and radius are derived. The direction of the velocity and acceleration vectors is determined. The conditions for the conservation of Kepler's laws when a material point moves along an ellipse are shown.
