Question #2 (Medium): Integral Representation of the Length of the Curve
When the function is given as in terms of , take the derivative of in terms of , thus .
If the function is given asin terms of , no need to rearrange to have written in terms of . take the
derivative of it as it is, thu, and taking the integral in terms of .
Set up an integral representing the length of the curve. Then evaluate the exact length of the curve.
First take the derivative of the given functi
