**Area Under a Curve (revisited)**

We use the definite integral to find the area under a curve. The limits of integration are a and b. The height of the rectangle is represented by f(x), the width by dx and the sum by the definite integral.

5
Finding Arc Length We want to determine the length of the continuous function f(x) on the interval [a,b] . Initially we’ll need to estimate the length of the curve. We’ll do this by dividing the interval up into n equal subintervals each of width x and we’ll denote the point on the curve at each point by Pi. We can approximate the curve by a series of straight lines connecting the points.

8
**Definition of Arc Length**

9
**Example Applying the Definition**

10
Example Find the length of the specified curve. =

11
**Algorithm to Find Arc Length**

Determine whether the length is with respect to x or y, and then find the endpoints for the interval. Find y’(x) or x’(y). Plug the derivative into the formula: Evaluate.

12
Sample Find the length of the specified curve. [1,2]

13
Sample Find the length of the specified curve. You are given the x values but you need c and d!!

14
Sample Find the length of the specified curve. y = sin(x) [0, ¶ ]

15
Sample Find the length of the specified curve. y = (x2 – 4)2 [0, 4 ]

16
**Example A Vertical Tangent**

17
Sample y = x1/5 [-1,4]

18
Closure Explain the difference in these two formulas.
