Therefore, t = 1 29 s. We get r ( t ( s )) = 2 s 29 , 1- 3 s 29 , 5 + 4 s 29 . Notice that with this, if s = 1 , the point on the curve (a line) is 2 29 , 1- 3 29 , 5 + 4 29 . The distance of this along the curve from the point (0 , 1 , 5) (where we started) is p 4 / 29 + 9 / 29 + 16 / 29 = 1 since the curve is just a line, and this is the value of s. This is the point of the reparametrization: the arc length is exactly the value of the parameter. (Try this for s = 2 and s = 7.)= 7....
