The Definite Integral as Area - Classwork

Instead of using the expression "the area under the curve f ( x) between x = a and x = b, we will now denote a shorthand to represent the same thing. We will use what is called "a definite integral." The definite integral sign is the same as the indefinite integral sign ( ! ) but will contain two limits of integration. The form is as follows:

b

, f ( x) dx . While this does not seems to make much sense, there is a reason for it. The f ( x) represents the height

a

of any one rectangle while the dx represents the width of any one rectangle. So f ( x) dx means the area of any one rectangle. The integral represents the sum of an infinite number of these rectangles. The a represents the starting place for these rectangles while the b represents the ending place for these integrals.

The area of one rectangle = f ( x) dx

The sum of an infinite number of rectangle areas. Each rectangle is infinitely thin.

When a < b, we are determining the area under the curve from left to right. In that case, our dx is a positive

b

number. If f ( x) is above the axis, then

, f ( x) dx will be a positive number.

a b

When b < a, we are determining the area under the curve from right to left. In that case, our dx is a negative number. If f ( x) is above the axis, then

, f ( x) dx will be a negative number. This can be summarized below:

a

f ( x) > 0 (curve above axis)

f ( x) < 0 (curve below axis)

b

dx > 0 (left to right) (a < b) dx < 0 (right to left) (b < a)

b

a b a

f ( x) dx > 0 (Area positive)

(Area negative)

, f ( x) dx < 0

a b

(Area negative) (Area positive)

, f ( x) dx < 0

, f ( x) dx > 0

a

Furthermore, there are three more rules which will make sense to you:

- If we start at a and end at a, there is no area.

c a

- From a to b gives an area. From b to a gives the negative of this area. - Total the area from a to b, add area from b to c = the area from a to c.
