Homework Help: calculus

Posted by mark on Sunday, September 21, 2008 at 6:36pm.

Consider a plane curve which is described in polar coordinates (r, @) by r = g(@) for @ for all [a,b] (@ representing theta).

Starting from the known expression for the length of a plane curve in Cartesian coordinates and the equation x = rcos@, y = rsin@, obtain an integral expression in terms of the function g and the numbers a and b for the length of the given curve.

How would I do this question. Thanks.
