## anonymous 3 years ago find the length of the curve y=(x/2)^(2/3) from x=0 to x=2

1. anonymous

how to use this formula $L =\int\limits_{a}^{b} \sqrt{1+(dy/dx)^2 dx}$

2. anonymous

that is exactly what you use

3. anonymous

take the derivative, square it, add 1, take the square root and integrate

-2

5. anonymous

first need to find dx/dy first because dy/dx cannot =0
