Track & Trace

Calculus Level 3

The ends of a stiff bar \(\overline{AB}\) of length 4 slide freely inside a parabolic track (specifically, the parabola \(y=x^2\)). As they do, the midpoint \(M\) of that bar traces a curve. Find the area of the region between the parabola and the curve traced by \(M\).

Assume that the bar slides infinitely in both directions.
