# differential geometry – Is this the correct way to find the intrinsic equation of a parabola?

begin{align} \y=x^2,y’=2x=tanpsi \s=int_0^xsqrt{2t+1},dt \s=frac{(2x+1)^{(3/2)}-1}{3} \s=frac{(tanpsi+1)^{(3/2)}-1}{3} end{align}

Is this correct?

And the curvature would be:

$$frac{dpsi}{ds}=frac{1}{frac{ds}{dpsi}}=frac{2}{sec^2psi(tanpsi+1)^{(1/2)}}$$

… right?
