Homework Help: AP Calc

Posted by Anon on Thursday, July 31, 2014 at 7:32pm.

When a chain hangs under its own weight, its shape is catenary. The equation of a catenary with a vertex on the y-axis is y=e^x+e^-x. Find the length of the chain from x=-2 to x=2. Then use the same technique from Problem #8(Previous AP calc problem I posted) to find the length of the parabola with the same vertex and endpoints.

I go the first part that asks to find the length to be 12.225, but I don't understand what the next part is asking or how to do it!
