\[x = (y^3/33) + 11/(4y) \] on 3<= y <= 5

So, I take the derivative. No problem; \[dy/dx = (y^2/11) + (11/(4y^2) \] Then Length = \[\sqrt(1 + (dy/dx)^2) \] So; \[Length = \sqrt(1 + (y^2/11 + 11/(4y))^2)\]

you are off by a minus sign

\[\int_3^5\sqrt{1+(\frac{y^2}{11}-\frac{11}{4y^2})^2}dy\]

Holy god. If that's the problem I have been having this whole time I'm not sure whether I'm going to laugh or cry. Probably a bit of both.

\[\int_3^5\sqrt{\frac{y^4}{121}+\frac{121}{16 y^4}+\frac{1}{2}}\]

Ok, maybe you can tell me this - when I type ((y^2/11) - (11/(4y^2))^2 on my calculator it gives me; ((4y^4 - 121)^2)/1936y^4 Any idea why?

Same thing on Wolfram - if I type your above equation (everything under the root) and tell it to factor it gives me the same as above.
