L(length) = int((1+y�^2) ^0.5)dx (0 to pi/3) = int(1/cosx)dx (0 to pi/3) = int(cosx/(1-sin^2x)dx (0 to pi/3) = int(1/(1-u^2))du (0 to 3^0.5/2) 1/(1-u^2) = 0.5/(1-u) + 0.5/(1+u) L = -0.5(ln(1-u)) (0 to 3^0.5/2) + 0.5(ln(1+u)) (0 to 3^0.5/2) L = 0.5 ln(2+3^0.5) Tags curve, finding, length length of curve
