The formula says from a to t, but in my book they use the greek letter "tau" as a dummy-variable. s(t) = (integral from a to t)||x'(tau)||dtau
Ok so those t's werent the same then. Call the integral t x for simplicity since we have a t already.
I'm still not sure I got this right. The next exercise is to express the original parameter t in terms of s, and, thereby, reparametrize x in terms of s. Looks a bit hard to do if my answer was correct.
