Here the dimension of is 1, so has a simple expression. So you can compute in terms of .

Hello,

thanks for the hint.

Because of n=1, we can write .

It is

I used the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus and ,

because is compact ( ).

Now, by definition it is

with is a zero set.

Because of , choose and then .

Is everything correct?
