Section 9.1: Arc Length The length of the curve of y = f x (29 from x = a to x = b is L = 1 + dy dx 2 dx a b . The length of the curve of x = f y (29 from y = c to y = d is L = 1 + dx dy 2 dy c d . Example. Find the length of the curve y = 1 2 e x + e - x ( 29 , 0 x 2 . Solution. L = 1 + dy dx 2 dx a b where y = 1 2 e x + e - x ( 29 dy dx = 1 2 e x - e - x ( 29 dy dx 2 = 1 2 e x - e - x ( 29 2 = 1 4 e 2 x - 2 + e - 2 x ( 29 1 + dy dx 2 = 1 + 1 4 e 2 x - 2 + e - 2 x ( 29 = 4 4 + 1 4 e 2 x - 2 + e - 2 x ( 29 = 1 4 4 + e 2 x - 2 + e - 2 x ( 29 = 1 4 e 2 x + 2 + e - 2 x ( 29 = 1 4 e x + e - x ( 29 2 = 1 2 e x + e - x ( 29 2 Therefore, L = 1 2 e x + e - x ( 29 2 dx 0 2 = 1 2 e x + e - x ( 29 dx 0 2 = 1 2 e x - e - x ( 29 0 2 = 1 2 e 2 - e - 2 ( 29 - 1 2 e 0 - e 0 ( 29 = 1 2 e 2 - 1 e 2
