Hello


The length of a curve, we can calculate: for a circle and a parabola.

All other curves are not computable!


perhaps use a iteration?


sorry, math is not everything :confused:

very nice ;-)

that is not calculated, but approximated? that's OK


and to provide now a iteration, in which x position is the end of the desired length.

or there is also a special command for it in GeoGebra?
