To find the arc length of the curve ( f(t) = \left(\frac{t}{\sqrt{t-1}}, \frac{t}{t^2-1}\right) ) on the interval ([2,3]), you use the formula for arc length:

[ L = \int_{a}^{b} \sqrt{\left(\frac{dx}{dt}\right)^2 + \left(\frac{dy}{dt}\right)^2} dt ]

Where ( \frac{dx}{dt} ) and ( \frac{dy}{dt} ) are the derivatives of ( x ) and ( y ) with respect to ( t ) respectively.

Taking derivatives:

[ \frac{dx}{dt} = \frac{\sqrt{t-1} - \frac{t}{2\sqrt{t-1}}}{t-1} ] [ \frac{dy}{dt} = \frac{t^2-1 - t(2t)}{(t^2-1)^2} ]

Substitute these into the arc length formula and integrate from 2 to 3:

[ L = \int_{2}^{3} \sqrt{\left(\frac{\sqrt{t-1} - \frac{t}{2\sqrt{t-1}}}{t-1}\right)^2 + \left(\frac{t^2-1 - t(2t)}{(t^2-1)^2}\right)^2} dt ]

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
