Right I won't bore you with a sob story but this is a regular grade 12 class and we've been posed with this problem:
Find the arc length of this function across 0 -> 5:
I learned the formula of s = Integral of
So I began using the Riemann sums until I get here, I'm not quite sure how to proceed.
If need be I will show how I got up to there, it just takes forever to use LaTeX.
PS: That should be x->infinity
Thanks!
No, this integral seems difficult to solve. I will start a new thread to see if anyone else can help. I'm afraid people may ignore your post since I responded to it. The integral you have to evaluate looks like this:
I'm not sure if this is something that is practical to solve by hand. I will start a thread with this integral to see what
others say.
