Key Concepts
b

1. Definite integral f(x)dx of the function f(x) from limits a to b represents
a
the area enclosed by the graph of the function f(x) the x axis, and the
vertical lines x= ‘a’ and x = ‘b’

## 2. Area function is given by

x

A(x) = f(x)dx , where x is a point in [a, b]
a

## 3. Area bounded by a curve, x-axis and two ordinates

Case 1: when curve lies above axis as shown below

Case 2: Curves which are entirely below the x-axis as shown below

b
Area  a f(x)dx

Case 3: Part of the curve is below the x-axis and part of the curve is above
the x-axis.

Area between two curves is the difference of the areas of the two graphs.

## Hence, Its area = (y2 − y1) Δx

b
 (y2  y1)x
Total Area = x a

b
Area   (y2  y1 )dx
a

## Area between two curves is also equal to integration of the area of an

elementary rectangular strip within the region between the limits.

b b
lines x = a and x = b (b > a) is Area= ydx  

9. The area of the region enclosed between two curves y = f (x), y = g
(x) and
the lines x = a, x = b is
