Recall how to calculate the arc-length and the curvature of a parametric curve
Any help as to the steps involved greatly appreciated (running low on time before the exam day after tomorrow).

If the curvature is expressed in the form , then the arc lenght is ... (1)
I don't quite follow the 'y = f(x)'. i thought parametric curves looked like eg x = 2t +3, y = t^2 +2 e.t.c...
If the curve is defined in parametric form , then ... (1)
I'm sure now that's the formula i was looking for. Thanks A lot.
