**1. Homework Statement**

Find the length of the spiral of r=1/theta for theta[tex]\geq[/tex]2 [tex]\pi[/tex]

**2. Homework Equations**

[tex]\int[/tex][tex]\sqrt{r^{2}+r'^{2}}[/tex]

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I thought of the formula for polar arc length, which is the integral of the square root of the sum of the square of r and the square of r'. I tried to evaluate this from 2 [tex]\pi[/tex] to infinity, but could not come up with a definitive answer. I think it might be infinity, but cannot show it legitimately
