Additive Property of Integrals
The additive property is defined as: Got it
Trapezoid Rule
A method to solve the area under a curve (the integral of a function) that uses the area of trapezoids drawn by the points on the graph.
Got it
Riemann sum
A method used to approximate the area under a curve (also known as an integral) that utilizes the area of rectangles to estimate the solution.
Got it
Right-handed Riemann sum
This Riemann sum calculation is solved using the height at the right points of the specific interval to estimate the area under a curve.
Got it
Using an interval of 1 from x = 0 to x = 5, find the value of the right-hand Riemann sum for the integral shown. 60. The right-handed Riemann sum leaves us with 2+5+10+17+26, which equals 60.
Got it
Left-sided Riemann sum
Riemann sum calculation where the height at the left point of the specific interval is used to estimate the area under a curve
Got it
Estimate the integral of y = 2x from x = 0 to x = 5 using left Riemann sums. Use a delta x of 1.
20. On the interval from x = 0 to x = 5, we get 0+2+4+6+8, which equals 20.
Got it

Additive Property of Integrals
The additive property is defined as: Zero Integral Property
This integral property is defined as: Evaluate the following integral: The integral equals 0 because of the Zero Integral Property
Solve the integral: The solution is: Complete the following integral formula: The formula equals the following when m is not equal to -1: The integral of acceleration with respect to time equals:
The velocity. Similarly, the integral of velocity with respect to time equals the speed.
Find y if y ' = 4x and y(0) = 4
y = 2x2 + 4
Sums Property of Integrals
The sums property is: Solve the following: 3a + 5b
Use the following graph to solve g(0) + g'(0) + g''(0) The solution is -3.

Using the fundamental theorem of calculus, g(x) = (1/2)x2 - 4

g(0) = -4, g'(0) = 0, g''(0) = 1
