Applications of Integration is a part of the VCE Maths Methods topic Calculus and subtopic Applications of Integration.
This post looks at how to apply integration to problems including:
- finding a function from a known rate of change given a boundary condition
- calculation of the area of a region under a curve and simple cases of areas between curves
- distance travelled in a straight line
Area Under the Curve
The following video explains how to find the area under the curve using integration.
Area Between Functions
The following video explains how to find the area between functions.
Displacement and Distance
The following video explains how to find distance and displacement from position-time graphs.
Further Applications of Integration
The following video applies integration to a variety of situations.
