## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

can someone help in re-parameterizing the curve

δ(t)=(2/3(√(L^2+9))cos(t),1/3(√(L^2+9))sin(t),L)

I found dδ/dt then I got the speed to be 1/3√(L^2+9)√(1+3sin^2(t))

L is just a constant z=L

I know how to re-parameterize curves to make them parameterized by arc-length when I get a constant speed but here the speed is in terms of t!

Thanks
