### Example Question #1 : Graphing Vectors

What is the arclength, from to , of the curve:

Hint:

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Arclength is given by the formula:

We should find dy/dx first, which we find to be:

Now let's proceed with the integral:

(here we apply the integration described in the hint)

which is obtained by evaluating at both boundaries.

### Example Question #1 : Graphing Vectors

Find the area of the polar equation:

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

When you plot the graph of , the bounds are between and .

Use the area formula for polar equations:

And so we find the area to be:

### Example Question #1 : Graphing Vectors

The graph of the vector valued function

looks most like which of the following scalar functions graphed on a Cartesian coordinate system?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

To determine this, we must convert our parametric form back into Cartesian form

To do this, we will solve for and reverse substitute.

Since we know the parameterization for y, we substitute in for

Our answer therefore is

### Example Question #1 : Graphing Vectors

The graph of the vector function can also be represented by the graph of which of the following functions in rectangular form?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

We can find the graph of in rectangular form by mapping the parametric coordinates to Cartesian coordinates :

We can now use this value to solve for :
