Areas and volumes
This is the chapter where we will actually put our knowledge of (definite) integration to practical use. We willcalculate areas under curves, areas bounded by curves, volumes under surfaces, volumes bounded by surfaces,etc. We will mostly be concerned with areas; however, we will delve a little into calculating volumes for the sake of completeness.Calculating areas and volumes is totally about calculating definite integrals and involves no new concepts. You areadvised to read the chapter on “
Definite Integration
” again if you are not very comfortable in evaluating integrals.We will now start with such calculations through actual examples.Find the area bounded between the curves
y

and
y

.
Solution:
The bounded area is depicted in the figure below:

If you’ve read the chapter on “
Applications of Derivatives
” properly, you should not have much of a problem plotting the graph of the two functions:
