Hi, I've a problem as in my attached image. Can I find the length of spline with this given situation? Or what I need to figure out more? Thanks in advance. Aung Sithu

Couldn't you just find the spline and do a line integral or something? (Oh geez I sound like such a high schooler saying that.) Do you know what kind of spline it is? You can use theta to find the slope of the left endpoint of the spline and then the slope of the line d (maybe?) as the other endpoint or just put the slope at zero. Then find the spline that works for those slopes and then do an arc length integral from the left endpoint to the right endpoint. Does that work?
