1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The curves with equations x" + y" = 1, n = 4, 6, 8, , are called fat circles. Graph the curves with n = 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 to see why. Set up an integral for the length S(2k), the arc of the fat circle with n=2k. Without attempting to evaluate the integral, state the value of lim S(2k) as x approaches infinity. 2. Relevant equations Formula for the lengths of curves. L= intergal of square root ((dx/dt)^2)/(dy/dt)^2) dt 3. The attempt at a solution when n=2, it is just a regular circle, therefore it is not too difficult to parametrize the function (for example, x=cost y=cost) However, when n gets other even number integers, i do not know how i can define it in parametrics.
