    Finding the angle and axis lengths of an ellipse

    Hi, I have an ellipse defined by \|\mathbf{A}^{-1}v\| = 1, where v is a vector in the ellipse and \mathbf A is a real, invertible 2-by-2 matrix. How can I find the lengths of the axis of the ellipse as well as the angle of the major axis? I need to know this because I want to plot the ellipse...

    find the area of surface generated by revolving the are about y axis

    the question is x = (e^t)(cos t ) , y = (e^t)(sin t ) , about y axis , where y = between 0 and 1 i have problem of finding the value of t when 1 = (e^t)(cos t ) and also 0 = (e^t)(cos t ) , since the integral cant be integrate so i let is as I . how to continue form my working ?
