The arc length function of a parametric equation is the function for which a given change of \Delta t corresponds to a change in the arc length of the function by the same amount. It is defined as


For example, say we have the vector parametric function

\vec r(t)=\begin{bmatrix}2t\\\sin(t)\\\cos(t)\end{bmatrix}
