Find the length of the curve? NO bounds are given.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

length of the curve formula

using wolframalpha I got this

int sqrt&#40; 1&#43; &#40;&#40;1-2 x&#41;&#47;&#40;2 sqrt&#40;x-x&#94;2&#41;&#41;&#43;1&#47;&#40;2 sqrt&#40;1-x&#41; sqrt&#40;x&#41;&#41;&#41;&#94;2&#41; dx - Wolfram|Alpha
================================================== ========

So, Is there any answer for this thing??

Thanks

2. To get the bounds, try looking for the natural domain of the original function.

3. Got it. its 0 to 1

the final answer = 2

4. Hmm. I get the limits as 0 to 1, and the value of the integral as different from yours. Can you post your work?
