Indefinite Integrals

RC

In integration, our aim is to undo the process of differentiation. Later we


will see that integration is a useful tool for evaluating areas and solving a
special type of equation.
We have already seen how to differentiate polynomials, so we will now look
at how to undo this process. The basic technique is:
x n +1
+c
n +1

n
dx
x =

n 1, c is the constant of integration.

Stated simply: raise the power (n) by one (giving n + 1 ), divide by the new
power ( n + 1 ), and add the constant of integration (c ) .

We use the symbol

for integration.

The must be used with dx in the examples above, to indicate that we


are integrating with respect to x.

The constant of integration is included to represent any constant term in


the original expression, since this would have been zeroed by differentiation.

Integrals with a constant of integration are called indefinite integrals.

Checking the answer


Since integration and differentiation are reverse processes, if we differentiate
our answer we should get back to what we started with.
For example, if we differentiate our answer to Example 1 above, we do get
back to the expression we started with.

Integrating terms with coefficients


The above technique can be extended to:

n 1, a is a constant.

Stated simply: raise the power (n) by one (giving n + 1 ), divide by the new
power ( n + 1 ), and add on c.

Integrating several terms

The following rule is used to integrate an expression with several terms:

( f ( x ) + g ( x ) ) dx = f ( x ) dx + g ( x ) dx .
Stated simply: integrate each term separately.

In general, we obtain solutions using integration:

y =

or

f ( x ) = f ( x ) dx .

This will result in a general solution since we can choose the value of c.
y

The general solution corresponds to a family


of curves, each with a different value for c.
The graph to the left illustrates some of the
curves=
y 13 x 3 + c with different values of c.

If we have additional information about the function (such as a point its graph
passes through), we can find the value of c and obtain a particular solution.

y = 13 x 3 5 x + c
=
4 13 ( 3 )3 5 ( 3 ) + c
4 = 9 15 + c
c =2

So y = 13 x 3 5 x + 2 .

We know that f (1) = 4 , so we can find c:

f ( x )= 13 x 3 + 32 x + c

If F ( x ) is an integral of f ( x ) , then we define:


b
) dx [ F ( =
x )]a
a f ( x=
b

F (b ) F ( a )

where a and b are called the limits of the integral.


Stated simply:
Work out the integral as normal, leaving out the constant of integration.
Evaluate the integral for x = b (the upper limit value).
Evaluate the integral for x = a (the lower limit value).
Subtract the lower limit value from the upper limit value.

Since there is no constant of integration and we are calculating a numerical


value, this is called a definite integral.

Geometric Interpretation of Integration

We will now consider the meaning of integration in the context of areas.


Consider

2
4 x 13 x 3
0 ( 4 x ) dx =

= 8 83 0
= 5 13 .
On the graph of y= 4 x 2 :
y
y= 4 x 2
The shaded area is given by

2
0 ( 4 x ) dx .
2

Therefore the shaded area is 5 13 square units.

In general, the area enclosed by the graph y = f ( x ) and the x-axis, between
x = a and x = b , is given by
b

a f ( x ) dx .

So the shaded area is 2 13 square units.

Areas below the x-axis


Care needs to be taken if part or all of the area lies below the x-axis. For
example if we look at the graph of =
y x2 4 :
y
The shaded area is given by

In this case, the negative indicates that the area is below the x-axis, as can be
seen from the diagram. The area is therefore 9 square units.

Areas above and below the x-axis


Consider the graph from the example above, with a different shaded area:
y

=
y x 2 4x

From the examples above, the total shaded area is:

Area 1 + Area 2 = 2 13 + 9 = 11 13 square units.


Area 1
Using the method from above, we might try to
calculate the shaded area as follows:
4 5 x

x 3 4x 2

Area 2

3 50 3 + 2

6 32 .
3

Clearly this shaded area is not 6 23 square units since we already found it to
be 11 13 square units. This problem arises because Area 1 is above the x-axis,
while Area 2 is below.

To find the true area, we needed to evaluate two integrals:

1 ( x
4

4 x ) dx

and

4 ( x
5

4 x ) dx .

We then found the total shaded area by adding the two areas together.
We must take care to do this whenever the area is split up in this way.

When dealing with areas between curves, areas above and below the x-axis do
not need to be calculated separately.
However, care must be taken with more complicated curves, as these may give
rise to more than one closed area. These areas must be evaluated separately.
For example:
y
y = g (x)

In this case we apply

A Special Integral

n

The method for integrating an expression of the form ( ax + b ) is:


n

( ax + b )

n +1

( ax + b )

=
dx

a ( n + 1)

+c ,

where a 0 and n 1 .

Stated simply: raise the power (n ) by one, divide by the new power and also
divide by the derivative of the bracket ( a ( n + 1)) , add c.

Changing powers back

To evaluate 43 , it is
easier to work out 4

Warning
Make sure you dont confuse differentiation and integration this could lose
you a lot of marks in the exam.
Remember the following rules for differentiation and integrating expressions
n

of the form ( ax + b ) :

d ax + b )n = an ( ax + b ) n 1 ,

dx (
n

( ax + b )

=
dx

( ax + b )n+1

These rules will not be given in the exam.

Using Differentiation to Integrate


Recall that integration is the process of undoing differentiation. So if we
differentiate f ( x ) to get g ( x ) then we know that g ( x =
) dx f ( x ) + c .
