Question 02 (c) 

FullSolution Problem. Justify your answer and show all your work. Simplification of the answer is not required. Find the length of the curve 
Make sure you understand the problem fully: What is the question asking you to do? Are there specific conditions or constraints that you should take note of? How will you know if your answer is correct from your work only? Can you rephrase the question in your own words in a way that makes sense to you? 
If you are stuck, check the hint below. Consider it for a while. Does it give you a new idea on how to approach the problem? If so, try it! 
Hint 

The formula for the arc length of this curve on the interval from is

Checking a solution serves two purposes: helping you if, after having used the hint, you still are stuck on the problem; or if you have solved the problem and would like to check your work.

Please rate my easiness! It's quick and helps everyone guide their studies. Using the formula in the hint, we see that we require the derivative of the curve in question. Notice that and so we compute the arc length to be
