Find arc length of y=logx from x=1 to x=2.

dy/dx)^2=1/x^2
arc length=Int of [sqrt(1+1/x^2)]dx

=Int of [sqrt(1+x^2)/x^2]
=Int of [sqrt(1+x^2)]/x from x=1 to x=2.
How to proceed further to integrate?

I'm having trouble with this question on arc length: y=lnx, (squareroot)3/3 greater than or equal to x less than or equal to 1 It sounds as if you want the length of the y = ln x curve from x = sqrt(3)/3 (0.57735..) to 1. The formula …

Graph the curve and find its exact length. x = e^t + e^-t, y = 5 - 2t, from 0 to 3 Length = Integral from 0 to 3 of: Sqrt[(dx/dt)^2 + (dy/dt)^2] dx/dt = e^t - e^-t, correct?

Find the length of the arc formed by y = (1/8)(4x^2-2ln(x)) from x=4 to x=8. I found the derivative of the function and got y'= x-(1/4x) Where I'm lost now is after plugging it into the arc length equation: integral of sqrt(1+(x-(1/4x))^2). …

f(x,y,z) = y; W is the region bounded by the plane x+y+z=2;cylinder x^2+z^2=1. and y=0. What I have set up isL 4 int(0 to 1) int(0 to sqrt(1-x^2)) int(0 to 1-x-y) y dydzdx. But solving this is pretty cumbersome. Any other ideas?
