§ 7.8: Improper Integrals Motivation We can evaluate Z b a f ( x ) dx if But what about when these conditions don’t hold? Example : Finding the area under f ( x ) = 1 x 2 from 1 to by evaluating Z 1 1 x 2 dx . Since we cannot handle infinite bounds, we can instead evaluate As N increases Let N
Do we always get a finite area with an infinite region of integration?Type 1 Improper Integral
