I'm having a difficult time understanding line integrals, here's the problem I'm working on, any help would be great, thanks in advance Given the equation: xy = 18, set up an integral to find the length of path from x=a to x=b

thanks! My only question here is how did you get from 18/x to the radical formula? thanks again

mr fantastic- ah I see now, I was actually not familiar with that formula, its a calc 2 online course, and the notes provided by the prof. are pretty difficult to decipher, now I've found the section though, thanks!
