How to find Arc Length of different curves ?

Length of a curve is called arc length.The method of finding arc length for different type of curves is very much similar, yet different formulas are used for them. Here we are going to study these formulas one by one.

To find arc length of a curve defined  by function f(x) over a certain interval [a,b] we use the following formula…

\dpi{120} \mathbf{L=\int_{a}^{b}\sqrt{1+[f'(x)]^{2}}dx}
