### Aperçu du document

14 Integration 1

Jakob Bernoulli was a Swiss

mathematician born in Basel,

Switzerland, on 27 December 1654.

Along with his brother, Johann, he is

considered to be one of the most

important researchers of calculus after

Newton and Leibniz. Jakob studied

theology at university, but during this

time he was studying mathematics and

astronomy on the side, much against

Jakob Bernoulli

the wishes of his parents. After

graduating in theology he travelled

around Europe and worked with a number of the great mathematicians of the time.

On return to Basel, it would have been natural for him to take an appointment in the

church, but he followed his first love of mathematics and theoretical physics and took

a job at the university. He was appointed professor of mathematics in 1687 and, along

with his brother, Johann, started studying Leibniz’s work on calculus. At this time

Leibniz’s theories were very new, and hence the work done by the two brothers was at

the cutting edge. Jakob worked on a variety of mathematical ideas, but in 1690 he

first used the term “integral” with the meaning it has today. Jakob held the chair of

mathematics at the university in Basel until his death in 1705. Jakob had always been

fascinated by the properties of the logarithmic spiral, and this was engraved on his

tombstone along with the words “Eadem Mutata Resurgo” which translates as “I shall

arise the same though changed.”

14.1 Undoing differentiation

In Chapters 8–10 we studied differential calculus and saw that by using the techniques

of differentiation the gradient of a function or the rate of change of a quantity can be

found. If the rate of change is known and the original function needs to be found, it is

necessary to “undo” differentiation. Integration is this “undoing”, the reverse process

to differentiation. Integration is also known as anti-differentiation, and this is often the

best way of looking at it.

dy

2x, what is the original function y?

dx

This is asking what we started with in order to finish with a derived function of 2x.

Remembering that we differentiate by multiplying by the power and then subtracting

one from the power, we must have started with x2.

dy

Similarly, if

4, then this must have started as 4x.

Looking at the answers to Exercise 1, we can form a rule for anti-differentiation.

If we describe the process of “undoing” differentiation for this type of function, we

could say “add 1 to the power and divide by that new power”.

In mathematical notation this is

This symbol means “the

integral of”.

This means “with

14.2 Constant of integration

dy

4. Geometrically, this means that the gradient of

dx

the original function, y, is constant and equal to 4.

Again consider the situation of

So y 4x c (c is the y-intercept of the line from the general equation of a line

y mx c ).

Consider the lines y 4x 3, y 4x and y 4x 5.

dy

4 (as the gradient is 4 each time). Remember that, when

dx

differentiating, a constant “disappears” because the gradient of a horizontal line is zero

For each line

or alternatively the derivative of a constant is zero.

So

冮4 dx 4x c.

Unless more information is given (a point on the line), then the value of c remains

dy

4. In fact

unknown. So any of the lines below could be the original function with

there are an infinite number of lines that could have been the original function.

14 Integration 1

This “c” is called the constant of integration. It must be included in the answer of any

integral, as we do not know what constant may have “disappeared” when the function

was differentiated.

We established in

Chapter 8 that a function

could be differentiated

“term by term”. In a

similar way, this can be

integrated term by term.

The coefficient of a term has no effect on the process of integration, and so a constant

14.3 Initial conditions

In all of the integrals met so far, it was necessary to include the constant of integration,

c. However, if more information is given (often known as initial conditions), then the

value of c can be found.

dy

Consider again the example of

4. If the line passes through the point (1, 3) then

dx

c can be evaluated and the specific line found.

So

dy

4

dx

冮

1 y 4 dx

1 y 4x c

Since we know that when x 1, y 3 these values can be substituted into the

equation of the line.

So

3 4 1 c

1 c 1

The equation of the line is y 4x 1.

When the value of c is unknown, this is called the general solution.

If the value of c can be found, this is known as the particular solution.

Example

Given that the curve passes through (1, 3) and

of the curve.

dy

2x 1, find the equation

14.4 Basic results

Considering the basic results from differentiation, standard results for integration can

now be produced. For polynomials, the general rule is:

冮

xn dx

However, consider

冮 x dx 冮x

Using the above rule, we would obtain

that

x

dx

This provides the result that

Remembering that ln x is defined only for positive values of x, we recognize that

is defined for all x H ⺢, x 0

dx ln冟x冟 c, taking the absolute value of x. As

x

and ln x is defined only for x 7 0, the absolute value sign is needed so that we can

14.5 Anti-chain rule

When functions of the type 12x 12 5, e8x and sin¢2x

p

≤ are differentiated, the

3

chain rule is applied. The chain rule states that we multiply the derivative of the outside

function by the derivative of the inside function. So to integrate functions of these types

we consider what we started with to obtain that derivative.

Example

dy

12x 12 3. Find y.

dx

冮

So y 12x 12 3 dx

When integrating, 1 is added to the power, so y must be connected to

12x 12 4. Since we multiply by the power and by the derivative of the inside

function when differentiating, we need to balance this when finding y.

For these simple cases of the “anti-chain rule”, we divide by the derivative of the

inside function each time. With more complicated integrals, which will be met in

the next chapter, this is not always the case, and at that point the results will be

formalized. This is why it is useful to consider these integrals as the reverse of

differentiation.

this produces a numerical answer.

14.7 Geometric significance of integration

When we met differentiation, it was considered as a technique for finding the gradient

of a function at any point. We now consider the geometric significance of integration.

12

This is the same as the area enclosed by the function, the x-axis and the vertical lines

x 1 and x 5.

This suggests that the geometric interpretation of integration is the area between the

curve and the x-axis.

Consider y 3x2.

3 x

In the previous example where y 3, it was easy to find the area enclosed by the

function, the x-axis and the limits. However, to find the area under a curve is less obvious.

This area could be approximated by splitting it into rectangles.

This now shows more formally that the geometric significance of integration is that it

finds the area between the curve and the x-axis.

If the two notations for summation are compared, we find that sigma notation is used

for a discrete variable and that integral notation is used for a continuous variable.

So the

冮 sign actually means

“sum of” (it is an elongated S).

14 Integration 1

This integration can be performed on a calculator. Although a calculator

cannot perform calculus algebraically, it can calculate definite integrals.

This is shown in the diagram below, and we find the area is still 10 square

units.

The answer to this definite integral is negative. However, area is a scalar quantity

1

(it has no direction, only magnitude) and so the area required is

square unit.

2

As the negative sign has no effect on the area, the area can be considered to be

b

冮

the absolute value of the integral. So A 2 f1x2 dx2. Whether the calculation

a

is done using the absolute value sign or whether we do the calculation and then

ignore the negative sign at the end does not matter. As can be seen from the

graph, the significance of the negative sign is that the area is contained below

the x-axis.

388

Some definite integration

questions require the use of

a calculator. Where an exact

value is required, one of the

limits is a variable or the

question is in a non-calculator

paper, algebraic methods

must be employed.

So the required area is 0.693 square units.

1

It should be noted that it is actually not possible to find the area given by

冮 x dx as

1

2

there is a vertical asymptote at x 0. It is not possible to find the definite integral over

an asymptote of any curve, as technically the area would be infinite.

This example also provides another explanation for the need for the modulus signs in

冮 x dx ln冟x冟. Although logarithms are not defined for negative values of x, in order to

1

1

find the area under a hyperbola like y , which clearly exists, negative values need to

x

be substituted into a logarithm, and hence the absolute value is required. This was

shown in the above example.

Example

Find the area enclosed by y 12x 12 2 4 and the x-axis.

14.8 Areas above and below the x-axis

In this case the formula needs to be applied carefully. Consider y x 1x 12 1x 22 and the

area enclosed by this curve and the x-axis.

˛

y x3 3x2 2x

2

If the definite integral

冮x

3

3x2 2x dx is calculated, we obtain an answer of 0 (remember

0

the calculator uses a numerical process to calculate an integral) and so this result is interpreted

as zero.

391

14 Integration 1

However, it is clear that the area is not zero.

We know that a definite integral for an area below the x-axis provides a negative answer.

This explains the zero answer – the two (identical) areas have cancelled each other out.

So although the answer to the definite integral is zero, the area is not zero.

To find an area that has parts above and below the x-axis, consider the parts separately.

So in the above example, area 2

This demonstrates an important point. The answer to finding an area and to finding the

value of the definite integral may actually be different.

The method used in the example below shows how to avoid such problems.

Method

1 Sketch the curve to find the relevant roots of the graph.

2 Calculate the areas above and below the x-axis separately.

3 Add together the areas (ignoring the negative sign).

Note that these graphs cross twice within the given interval. So, we need to find

the intersections and then treat each part separately (as the curve that is the

upper one changes within the interval).

Area between a curve and the y-axis

Mostly we are concerned with the area bounded by a curve and the x-axis. However, for

some functions it is more relevant to consider the area between the curve and the y-axis.

This is particularly pertinent when volumes of revolution are considered in Chapter 16.

b

The area between a curve and the x-axis is

冮 y dx

a

To find the area between a curve and the y-axis we calculate

b

冮 x dy

This is where x is a function

of y.

a

This formula is proved in an identical way to the area between the curve and the x-axis,

except that thin horizontal rectangles of length x and thickness dy are used.

Example

Consider y2 9 x.

397

14 Integration 1

There is no choice here but to use horizontal strips as opposed to vertical strips,

as vertical strips would have the curve at both ends, and hence the length of the

rectangle would no longer be y and the formula would no longer work.
