Abstract: In this paper, I have introduced a new patent rule for computing ARC LENGTH of an ELLIPTICAL

CURVE. It is based on Geometrical Theorems. The method is fast and simplest of all other methods meant for

Elliptical Arc Length. The earlier methods existing for computing Elliptical Arc Length like Riemann sum (by

integration), Numerical Integration, Bernoulli’s method, Euler’s method, and other methods in this sequence till

now, recently by Arvind Narayan(September-2012) provide approximate value and have more variables and

involve more steps to compute.. The peculiarity of this method is that no smoothness (differentiability) of the

curve is required, just the extremities of arc is enough to determine the exact arc length of the elliptical curve.

The present method not only provides a formula, but also, it will serve as the precious tool for the subjects

relevant to the Elliptical Arc Length.

I. INTRODUCTION

arlier attempts to compute arc length of ellipse by antiderivative give rise to elliptical integrals (Riemann

integrals) which is equally useful for calculating arc length of elliptical curves; though the latter is degree 3

or more, and the former is a degree 2 curves. Perhaps elliptical integrals are valuable tool, but for some curves it

is difficult to evaluate and for some elliptical curves evaluation of elliptical integrals becomes impossible. Other

methods like Riemann sum, and numerical integration after a long process gives an approximation, recently in

2012, Arvind narayan used geometry and trigonometry to find approximate elliptical arc length which requires

end points of arc as well as their parametric equations.

The method which I am submitting is a simple solution for above problems, which just need the extremities of

the elliptical arc. This method also establishes a valuable relation between elliptical arc length and its

corresponding intercepted chord. To justify the significance of this method, it is necessary to explain it in two

stages: Derivation of the formula, verification and its comparison.

II. DERIVATION OF THE FORMULA(GEOMETRICALLY IN THE FORM OF THEOREM)

[Farooque’s Theorem]

Statement: The arc length) of an elliptical curve is equal to

√

times of the intercepted chord length.

Given: An elliptical arc with extremities A (

Construction:

( Joining extremities A & B of given elliptical arc to make chord AB.

Draw perpendicular bisector of the chord AB.

With mid- point M of chord AB, as center and AM as radius, draw a circle, which

cuts the produced ( at point P and Q.

( Joining AP and BP.

Proof:

(A) In APM and BPM,

PM=PM (Common side to both triangles)

AM=BM (Since M is the mid-point of AB)

AMP = BMP (Each is 90 (as PM ┴ AB))

By SAS Congruency,

AP=BP (By cpct)

APM BPM (By cpct)

Also APB=90 (As it is an angle in a semicircle (Appendix-A)]

Circumference (C) of ellipse = √

C= √

= 22.21

By our recent formula,

AB= 5.55, which is the quarter of Circumference.

Now, C = 4AB = 45.55 = 22.20

III. CONCLUSION

Therefore, above theorem gives a simple formula to determine the ‘‘arc length of given Elliptical arc segment

lying within a quadrant of the ellipse’’, in the same manner, it is meant for other elliptical functions.

IV. PROSPECTS

Due to the simplicity and the degree of accuracy, this geometrical fact can be a step towards solving the

problems related to elliptical Integrals, consequently a tool for all types of elliptic function. I hope that the

method would find extensive applications where we require arc length of elliptical curves like cryptography and

other applied engineering fields.

APPENDIX-A

STATEMENT: “Angle subtended at the centre of the circle by its arc is twice the angle which the same arc

subtends at the remaining part of the circle.”

GIVEN: A circle with centre O and radius r, AB is the arc and P is the point on the circle in its alternate

segment.

TO PROVE: AOB = 2 APB

CONSTRUCTION: Draw a circle with centre O, AB is arc and joining OA, OB, also PO produced up to C and

joining PA and PB.

PROOF: In AOP

OA = OP (being radius of same circle)

OAP = OPA

We know that,

Exterior Angle = sum of two remote interior angles

AOC = OAP + OPA = 2 OPA ------- (1)

Similarly, in BOP

BOC = 2 BPO -------- (2)

Adding (1) and (2), we get

AOC + BOC = 2 ( APO + BPO )

AOB = 2 APB -------- (3)

COROLLARY: If AB is a semicircle then AOB = 180° ------- (4)

2 APB = 180°

APB = 90°

Thus, angle in a semicircle is right angle.
