(12C Platinum) Parabola - arc length
The Arc Length of a Parabola calculator compute the arc length (S)

of a parabola based on the distance height (H) and

the width (L) of the parabola at that point perpendicular to the axis.

----------------------------------------------------------------

The formula for determining the length of an arc of a Parabola.

   

----------------------------------------------------------------

Instruction: FIX 4

1. H [R/S] display Height
2. L [R/S] display Answer of the Arc Length of a Parabola

----------------------------------------------------------------

Example: H is 20 feet and L is 90 feet, what is the length of S?

20 [R/S] display 20.000
90 [R/S] display 100.7376

Answer: 100.7376 feet

To check answer for difference problem or check if this program give
correct answer.

---------------------------------
Instruction:

H [ENTER] L [R/S] display Answer of Parabola arc length

H is the Height
L is the distance from both end

RE: (12C Platinum) Parabola - arc length
Thanks Dominique

Here is another version without using any STO registers and only use the stacks.
This can be adapted to HP-11C as well.

Procedure is the same: H [ENTER] L [R/S] display Parabola Arc Length

Program for HP-12C Platinum on RPN mode
Code:

001  ÷
002 LSTx
003 X<>Y
004 ENTER
005 X^2
006  1
007  6
008 1/x
009  +
010 √x

The formula given in your image can be optimised, unless LN is a natural log.
It includes two instances of LN: LN4 and LN().
Where N = H/L
Thus LN 4 can be optimised to LH/L = H, and similarly for LN() if that is an implied multiply and not a natural logarithm.

RE: (12C Platinum) Parabola - arc length
Hello,

This the trap ! In the formula, LN is the neperian logarithm, and not LxN !

However, you can optimize the computation : the steps sequence "ln 4 ln +" can be replace with "4 * ln".

RE: (12C Platinum) Parabola - arc length
Hello, thanks to StephenG1CMZ and Dominique

Yes Post#1 Formula look very tricky and thanks for the head up on that formula.
On Post#3 that formula is a good one to use.

Thanks

RE: (12C Platinum) Parabola - arc length
One more parameter can be calculated with the same data, the Surface:
A= 2/3 * H * L
For H= 20 and L= 90, A= 1200.00
You only need to store H in R3 and actívate LBL B with the following sequence:
LBL B
2
ENTER
3
/
RCL 0
RCL 3
x

RE: (12C Platinum) Parabola - arc length
For HP-11C, code can be shortened using identity: asinh(x) = ln(x + √(x^2+1))

parabola arc length = (asinh(x)/x + √(x^2+1)) * L/2, where x=4H/L

Doing everything on the stacks, we have:

Code:
01 LBL A ; Instructions : H [enter] L [A]
02 /
03 LST-X
04 X<>Y
05 4
06 x ; x = 4H/L
07 ASINH
08 LST-X
09 /
10 LST-X
11 X^2
12 1
13 +
14 SQRT
15 +
16 x
17 2
18 /
19 R/S
