Student[Calculus1][ArcLengthTutor] - find the arc length of a curve

 Calling Sequence ArcLengthTutor(f, a..b) ArcLengthTutor(f, var=a..b)

Parameters

 f - (optional) algebraic expression in one variable var a..b - (optional) interval var - (optional) variable

Description

 • The ArcLengthTutor(f) launches a tutor interface that computes and plots the arc length of f over the interval a..b.
 If f is not specified, ArcLengthTutor uses a default function.
 If a..b is not specified, ArcLengthTutor uses a default interval.
 If var is not specified, ArcLengthTutor uses a default variable.

Examples

 > $\mathrm{ArcLengthTutor}\left(2-{x}^{3}\right)$
 > $\mathrm{ArcLengthTutor}\left(2-{x}^{3},0..2\right)$
 > $\mathrm{ArcLengthTutor}\left(2-{x}^{3},x=0..2\right)$
