Find the arc length of the givenn curve on the given innterval
x=e^-tcost, y=e^-tsint, 0<t<pi/2
so I figured out dx/dt and dy/dt to be -e^-tsint-e^-tcost and e^-tcost-e^-tsint respectively.
And then ... integeral(0to pi/2) of square root of dy/dt^2 + dx/dt^2
However, it gets really mess and when I take the squares of dx/dt and dy/dt it becomes really messy. Is there a better way to work through this problem?
