I need to prove that arc length is represented by that expression, attached as gif file.

I'm sure this is it? http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/CalcII/PolarArcLength.aspx I haven't looked into the derivations.. But it's all there! good luck

Thanks for the link, but it gives me the arc length integral in terms of dθ instead of dt. The integral expression that i need to show is for dt.

we have x= rcos theta , y= r sin theta dx/dt=dr/dt(cos theta) -r sin theta (d theta/dt) dy/dt=dr/dt(sin theta) +r cos theta (d theta/dt) v^2= (dx/dt)^2+(dy/dt)^2 s=int_{t0}^{t1}vdt (dx/dt)^2+(dy/dt)^2=(dr/dt)^2+(r*d theta/dt)^2 hence you get the expression.
