Hello all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am taking a class on differential geometry and I have run into a problem with the following question:

Show that if α is a regular curve, i.e., ||α'(t)|| > 0 for all t ∈ I, then s(t) is an invertible function, i.e., it is one-to-one (Hint: compute s'(t) ).

I am not really sure what the hint is getting at and don't really know how I should be aproaching this problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated : )

thanks in advanced!
