Arc Length of a Function - Maple Programming Help

Arc Length of a Function

 Description Measure a specified arc of a univariate function.

Enter the function as an expression.

 > ${{x}}^{{2}}$
 ${{x}}^{{2}}$ (1)

Specify the range, and then measure the arc length.

 >
 ${2}{}\sqrt{{17}}{-}\frac{{1}}{{2}}{}{\mathrm{ln}}{}\left({-}{4}{+}\sqrt{{17}}\right)$ (2)

Alternatively, you can use the Arc Lengths tutor, a point-and-click interface. There are two ways to launch this tutor.

 • From the Tools menu, select Tutors, Calculus - Single Variable, and then Arc Lengths.
 • Enter the function as an expression in one variable, then click the following Arc Lengths button.
