Well, I would first like to point out that what you have written aren't curves but just one curve defined parametrically. It's called a cycloid.

Anyway, I guess you'd like the area between it and the x-axis.

Just take the integral as always, but rewrite with theta:

Now you can solve this any way you like. - Jun 7th 2011, 10:19 AMTheEmptySet
