Introduction In this part of project, we are evaluating the area, volume of dirt, and average elevation of the points that we have previously selected in our project. In order to find the area below from one point to another, we use indefinite integral and definite integral. Indefinite integral is the opposite of derivatives, the degree of function becomes bigger as to smaller in derivatives of the original function. The indefinite integral doesn’t provide you with area, however, it only gives you the function. We use definite integral to find the area, which is to plug in the distance into the indefinite integral function. ∫ f(x)dx = F(x) ∫ = F(b) – F(a) = area; a is the starting point of the line; b is the ending point of the line. By using this function, we can easily find the area below the line of distance.

    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.
