# Arc length of polar curves - Parametric Equations and Polar Coordinates

### Arc length of polar curves

In this lesson, we will learn how to find the arc length of polar curves with a given region. We will first examine the formula and see how the formula works graphically. Then we will apply the formula to some of the questions below. Make sure you know trigonometric identities very well, as you will often need to use substitution to make your integrals simpler to integrate.
