**CIRCLE AREA & ARC LENGTH**

The notes contained in the link directly below show the derivation of circle area using some of the integration techniques illustrated earlier; the formula for arc length is also derived, with reference to the Mean Value Theorem. This formula is applied to several functions to determine arc length over a given interval and is ultimately used to prove the formula for circumference of a circle. This circumference formula is then used to once again prove the formula for area of circles, this time using the "shell" method of integration.
