|Class 12 Maths Application of Integrals||Introduction|
Calculus is widely seen as functions, differentiation, and integration. It has a lot of applications in the fields of Engineering, Science, and Mathematics. We have already studied to find the area bounded by the curve y = f(x), the ordinates x = a, x = b and x-axis, while calculating definite integral as the limit of a sum.
In this chapter, we shall study a specific application of integrals to find the area under simple curves, area between lines and arcs of circles, parabolas and ellipses. We will learn how to use integrals to find out areas under different conditions.
