Set up an integral that represents the length of the curve. Then use your calculator to find the length correct to four decimal places.6. x = y2 − 2y, 0 ≤ y ≤ 2

To determine

To represent: An integral as the length of the curve.

The length of the curve.

Explanation

Given information:

The curve function is x=y22y (1)

The limits are a=0 and b=2.

Calculation:

The expression to find the length of the curve is shown below:

L=ab1+(dxdy)2dy (2)

Here, the derivative of the function x is dxdy, the lower limit is a, and the upper limit is b.

Differentiate Equation (1) with respect to y
