Discussion 1A – Calculus II Research and share your findings about a specific problem in your intended major or career where a definite integral can apply. Be specific (do not simply say " engineering " if that is your general area!) and share the model you found. Firstly, I have not chosen my major yet, but probably, I might be in Industrial Engineering. In Industrial Engineering major, the students will be familiar with the definite integral, especially when they start having physics courses. Definite integral will be applied to solve such physics problems that related to kinematics and also mechanics. For example, the definite integral is used to solve work done by variable force and lateral pressure of liquor, center of mass, equation of motions, and problems that related to the relationship between potential energy and work. Specifically, for solving center of mass problem, definite integral can be used as this following example: For example we have center of mas region that bounded by y = x 3 , y = x

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
