3D Curve Length
Can anyone help me calculate the length of a 3D curve? I need to know the length from 0 degrees to 800 degrees of a curve in the form:
I have specific values that I am using for R, r, and a. The curve is called a Hypocycloid.
For any curve given by x(t), y(t), and z(t), the arclength is given by .
