My friend told me that they had just learned an equation to find the length of a function. I decided that it would be cool to try to find it myself. I got: [tex](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

L(x) = \int \sqrt(f'(x)^2 +1)dx [/tex]

I got that by saying that the length of a line with a slope of a over a distance of h is: [tex] \sqrt(f'(x)^2 +1) [/tex]

Am I right?
