The Attempt at a Solution


I don't even know how to start this problem. I thought about c(t) since that's all I have been doing, but there isn't even c(t). I only recognize domain. Can anyone help me please?

Start with parameterization x = t, y = t3 so your curve is given by
[tex]\vec R(t) = \langle t, t^3\rangle,\, 0\le t\le 1[/tex]
