Let f be a function such that the derivative f' is continuous on the closed interval [a, b]. The arc length of f from x = a to x = b is the integral

the length of a cuvre is the integral sum of the small infinitesimals dI. \[dl=\sqrt{dx^2+dy^2}\] now integrate this over the limit [a,b] where the function is defined. PS:take dx outta the integral and u hav f' ... u now can peacefully integrate.
