Give a rough sketch of the trace of . We apply Proposition (1.3) noting that is a piecewise smooth function to find V ( ) = lim a  i 1  Z 1 a 1 t 2 e t 1 dt = lim a 2 e t 1 1 a = 2 e 1 7. Show that : [0 , 1] C , defined by ( t ) = t + it sin 1 t for t 6 = 0 and (0) = 0, is a path but is not rectifiable. Sketch this path. To show gamma is a path, it suffices to show continuity on the prescribed interval. So we consider lim t t + it sin 1 t = 0 since the first term goes to zero by continuity and the second since the sine factor is a bounded function multiplied by zero. To show this curve is not rectifiable, we represent it in R 2 as y = x sin 1 /x . Differentiating we find y = sin 1 x 1 x cos 1 x Setting the above equal to zero and rearranging we find the equation tan(...
