In this tutorial, we learn how to find the arc length of a function. All you're doing when finding arc length is finding the curve between 'a' and 'b'. Imagine this as a string you're pulling straight to see how long it is going to be. The formula says if your function is in 'y=x' you have to take one times the derivative squared. This is a basic formula that you will use to find the arc length. When you plug in your values to this equation, you will find the answer. Practice with the examples to follow along and then write in the units to finish the equation.
