Ch 12: Integration Applications

About This Chapter

Watch integration applications video lessons with accompanying quizzes for immediate feedback. Learn differential notation, proportional population dynamics and more.

Integration Applications

Once you've learned about integration and integration techniques, it's time to move on to applications. Not to be confused with integration application used in software development and engineering, these calculus functions are important and often used in everyday life. These are just a few of the integral applications that come up in the calculus field. Don't be surprised to see many more appear as you continue your lessons.

Throughout these lessons, you'll be introduced to these integration applications. Watch each application and equation explained and then proven with examples. Our instructors teach these lessons with multiple examples to provide the clearest understanding of functions, methods and applications. If you have trouble following the video, read along with the text. Then take the short quiz following each lesson to assess your understanding. Unlike live lectures, these lessons allow you to re-watch any topic or problem that you may need clarification on.

During these lessons, study Newton's method for root-finding problems and other root-finding solutions. Next, learn how to find location (using a function of time) and areas between functions. Finally, learn how to calculate volumes. Discover how to find volumes of revolution for all shapes with curved edges, including disks and cylinders. Also, discover how to find volumes using single integrals.
