To find the arc length of the curve ( f(x) = x - \sqrt{e^x - 2 \ln x} ) on the interval ([1, 2]), we'll use the formula for arc length:

[ L = \int_{a}^{b} \sqrt{1 + (f'(x))^2} , dx ]

First, we need to find ( f'(x) ), then we'll plug it into the formula and integrate over the interval ([1, 2]).

[ f'(x) = 1 - \frac{1}{2\sqrt{e^x - 2\ln x}} \left(2e^x - \frac{2}{x}\right) ]

[ = 1 - \frac{e^x - \frac{1}{x}}{\sqrt{e^x - 2\ln x}} ]

Now, we'll plug this into the formula for arc length:

[ L = \int_{1}^{2} \sqrt{1 + \left(1 - \frac{e^x - \frac{1}{x}}{\sqrt{e^x - 2\ln x}}\right)^2} , dx ]

This integral represents the arc length of the curve ( f(x) ) on the interval ([1, 2]).

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.
