Questions & Answers
Q: What are the two formulas used to find the area under a curve?
The two formulas used are integral y dx for finding the area with respect to the xaxis and integral x dy for finding the area with respect to the yaxis.
Q: How do you determine the limits of integration for finding the area under a curve?
The limits of integration are determined by identifying the starting and ending points of the region under the curve. In the given example, the region starts at x = 0 and ends at x = 3.
Q: How do you draw the graph of a given function?
To draw the graph, identify the power of each variable in the equation. The variable with the minimum power will determine the direction of the curve. Also, determine the sign of the variable to determine the direction of the yaxis.
Q: What is the final answer to the example problem of finding the area under the curve y = x^2 from x = 0 to x = 3 with the xaxis?
The final answer is 9 square units.
