A Preview of Calculus (see page 2). It discusses
the unifying ideas of calculus and helps put in
perspective where we have been and where we
are going. introduce the derivative, which is the central idea in differential calculus. In much the same way, this chapter starts
with the area and distance problems and uses them to formulate the idea of a deﬁnite integral, which is the basic
concept of integral calculus. We will see in Chapters 6 and 9 how to use the integral to solve problems concerning volumes, lengths of curves, population predictions, cardiac output, forces on a dam, work, consumer surplus, and baseball,
among many others.
There is a connection between integral calculus and differential calculus. The
Fundamental Theorem of Calculus relates the integral to the derivative, and we will
see in this chapter that it greatly simpliﬁes the solution of many problems. |||| 5.1 Areas and Distances
In this section we discover that in trying to ﬁnd the area under a curve or the distance
traveled by a car, we end up with the same special type of limit. The Area Problem
We begin by attempting to solve the area problem: Find the area of the region S that lies
under the curve y f ͑x͒ from a to b. This means that S, illustrated in Figure 1, is bounded
by the graph of a continuous function f [where f ͑x͒ ജ 0], the vertical lines x a and
x b, and the x-axis.
FIGURE 1 0 S=s(x, y) | a¯x¯b, 0¯y¯ƒd a x=b
b x In trying to solve the area problem we have to ask ourselves: What is the meaning of
the word area ? This question is easy to answer for regions with straight sides. For a rectangle, the area is deﬁned as the product of the length and the width. The area of a triangle
is half the base times the height. The area of a polygon is found by dividing it into triangles (as in Figure 2) and adding the areas of the triangles. A™

intuitive idea of what the area of a region is. But part of the area problem is to make this
intuitive idea precise by giving an exact deﬁnition of area.
Recall that in deﬁning a tangent we ﬁrst approximated the slope of the tangent line by
slopes of secant lines and then we took the limit of these approximations. We pursue a similar idea for areas. We ﬁrst approximate the region S by rectangles and then we take the
limit of the areas of these rectangles as we increase the number of rectangles. The following example illustrates the procedure.

SOLUTION We ﬁrst notice that the area of S must be somewhere between 0 and 1 because S
is contained in a square with side length 1, but we can certainly do better than that. Suppose we divide S into four strips S1, S2 , S3, and S4 by drawing the vertical lines x 1 ,
x 1 , and x 3 as in Figure 4(a).

4 1 x (b) We can approximate each strip by a rectangle whose base is the same as the strip and
whose height is the same as the right edge of the strip [see Figure 4(b)]. In other words,
the heights of these rectangles are the values of the function f ͑x͒ x 2 at the right end
points of the subintervals [0, 1 ], [ 1 , 1 ], [ 1 , 3 ], and [ 3 , 1].
Each rectangle has width 1 and the heights are ( 1 )2, ( 1 )2, ( 3 )2, and 12. If we let R 4 be
the sum of the areas of these approximating rectangles, we get y

From Figure 4(b) we see that the area A of S is less than R 4 , so
A Ͻ 0.46875

4 1 x Instead of using the rectangles in Figure 4(b) we could use the smaller rectangles in
Figure 5 whose heights are the values of f at the left endpoints of the subintervals. (The
leftmost rectangle has collapsed because its height is 0.) The sum of the areas of these 5E-05(pp 314-323) 1/17/06 3:37 PM Page 317 SECTION 5.1 AREAS AND DISTANCES ❙❙❙❙ 317 approximating rectangles is

4 We see that the area of S is larger than L 4 , so we have lower and upper estimates for A:
0.21875 Ͻ A Ͻ 0.46875
We can repeat this procedure with a larger number of strips. Figure 6 shows what
happens when we divide the region S into eight strips of equal width. y y

areas of the larger rectangles ͑R 8 ͒, we obtain better lower and upper estimates for A:
0.2734375 Ͻ A Ͻ 0.3984375
n Ln Rn 10
0.3338335 So one possible answer to the question is to say that the true area of S lies somewhere
between 0.2734375 and 0.3984375.
We could obtain better estimates by increasing the number of strips. The table at the
left shows the results of similar calculations (with a computer) using n rectangles whose
heights are found with left endpoints ͑L n ͒ or right endpoints ͑R n ͒. In particular, we see
by using 50 strips that the area lies between 0.3234 and 0.3434. With 1000 strips we
narrow it down even more: A lies between 0.3328335 and 0.3338335. A good estimate is
obtained by averaging these numbers: A Ϸ 0.3333335.
From the values in the table in Example 1, it looks as if R n is approaching

n l ϱ. Therefore, we deﬁne the area A of the region S in the following way. y 2 Definition The area A of the region S that lies under the graph of the continuous function f is the limit of the sum of the areas of approximating rectangles: A lim R n lim ͓ f ͑x 1 ͒ ⌬x ϩ f ͑x 2 ͒ ⌬x ϩ и и и ϩ f ͑x n ͒ ⌬x͔

ith rectangle to be the value of f at any number x* in the ith subinterval ͓x iϪ1, x i ͔. We call
the numbers x 1 , x 2 , . . . , x n the sample points. Figure 13 shows approximating rectangles when the sample points are not chosen to be endpoints. So a more general expression

A Ϸ 1.006 The Distance Problem
Now let’s consider the distance problem: Find the distance traveled by an object during a
certain time period if the velocity of the object is known at all times. (In a sense this is the
inverse problem of the velocity problem that we discussed in Section 2.1.) If the velocity
remains constant, then the distance problem is easy to solve by means of the formula
distance velocity ϫ time
But if the velocity varies, it’s not so easy to ﬁnd the distance traveled. We investigate the
problem in the following example.
EXAMPLE 4 Suppose the odometer on our car is broken and we want to estimate the distance driven over a 30-second time interval. We take speedometer readings every ﬁve
seconds and record them in the following table: Time (s)
Velocity (mi͞h) 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 17 21 24 29 32 31 28 In order to have the time and the velocity in consistent units, let’s convert the velocity
readings to feet per second (1 mi͞h 5280͞3600 ft͞s):
Velocity (ft͞s) 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 25 31 35 43 47 46 41 During the ﬁrst ﬁve seconds the velocity doesn’t change very much, so we can estimate
the distance traveled during that time by assuming that the velocity is constant. If we
take the velocity during that time interval to be the initial velocity (25 ft͞s), then we 5E-05(pp 314-323) 1/17/06 3:37 PM Page 323 SECTION 5.1 AREAS AND DISTANCES ❙❙❙❙ 323
obtain the approximate distance traveled during the ﬁrst ﬁve seconds:
25 ft͞s ϫ 5 s 125 ft
Similarly, during the second time interval the velocity is approximately constant and we
take it to be the velocity when t 5 s. So our estimate for the distance traveled from
t 5 s to t 10 s is
31 ft͞s ϫ 5 s 155 ft
If we add similar estimates for the other time intervals, we obtain an estimate for the
total distance traveled:
25 ϫ 5 ϩ 31 ϫ 5 ϩ 35 ϫ 5 ϩ 43 ϫ 5 ϩ 47 ϫ 5 ϩ 46 ϫ 5 1135 ft
We could just as well have used the velocity at the end of each time period instead of
the velocity at the beginning as our assumed constant velocity. Then our estimate
31 ϫ 5 ϩ 35 ϫ 5 ϩ 43 ϫ 5 ϩ 47 ϫ 5 ϩ 46 ϫ 5 ϩ 41 ϫ 5 1215 ft
If we had wanted a more accurate estimate, we could have taken velocity readings every
two seconds, or even every second.
40 20 0 FIGURE 15 10 20 30 t Perhaps the calculations in Example 4 remind you of the sums we used earlier to estimate areas. The similarity is explained when we sketch a graph of the velocity function of
the car in Figure 15 and draw rectangles whose heights are the initial velocities for each
time interval. The area of the ﬁrst rectangle is 25 ϫ 5 125, which is also our estimate
for the distance traveled in the ﬁrst ﬁve seconds. In fact, the area of each rectangle can be
interpreted as a distance because the height represents velocity and the width represents
time. The sum of the areas of the rectangles in Figure 15 is L 6 1135, which is our initial estimate for the total distance traveled.
In general, suppose an object moves with velocity v f ͑t͒, where a ഛ t ഛ b and
f ͑t͒ ജ 0 (so the object always moves in the positive direction). We take velocity readings
at times t0 ͑ a͒, t1, t2 , . . . , tn ͑ b͒ so that the velocity is approximately constant on each
subinterval. If these times are equally spaced, then the time between consecutive readings
is ⌬t ͑b Ϫ a͒͞n. During the ﬁrst time interval the velocity is approximately f ͑t0 ͒ and so
the distance traveled is approximately f ͑t0 ͒ ⌬t. Similarly, the distance traveled during the
second time interval is about f ͑t1 ͒ ⌬t and the total distance traveled during the time interval ͓a, b͔ is approximately
n f ͑t0 ͒ ⌬t ϩ f ͑t1 ͒ ⌬t ϩ и и и ϩ f ͑tnϪ1 ͒ ⌬t ͚ f ͑t iϪ1 ͒ ⌬t i1 If we use the velocity at right endpoints instead of left endpoints, our estimate for the total

3, it follows that the distance traveled is equal to the area under the graph of the velocity
function. In Chapters 6 and 9 we will see that other quantities of interest in the natural and
social sciences—such as the work done by a variable force or the cardiac output of the
heart—can also be interpreted as the area under a curve. So when we compute areas in this
chapter, bear in mind that they can be interpreted in a variety of practical ways. |||| 5.1 Exercises 1. (a) By reading values from the given graph of f , use ﬁve rect- right endpoints. Sketch the graph and the rectangles. Is

inﬁnite discontinuities). (See Section 2.5.) So we can also deﬁne the deﬁnite integral for
The symbol x was introduced by Leibniz and is called an integral sign. It is
an elongated S and was chosen because an integral is a limit of sums. In the notation

the direction of the legendary Gauss at the
University of Göttingen and remained there to
teach. Gauss, who was not in the habit of praising other mathematicians, spoke of Riemann’s
“creative, active, truly mathematical mind and
gloriously fertile originality.” The deﬁnition (2) of
an integral that we use is due to Riemann. He
also made major contributions to the theory of
functions of a complex variable, mathematical
physics, number theory, and the foundations of
geometry. Riemann’s broad concept of space and
geometry turned out to be the right setting, 50
years later, for Einstein’s general relativity theory.
Riemann’s health was poor throughout his life,
and he died of tuberculosis at the age of 39. that occurs in Deﬁnition 2 is called a Riemann sum after the German mathematician
Bernhard Riemann (1826–1866). We know that if f happens to be positive, then the
Riemann sum can be interpreted as a sum of areas of approximating rectangles (see Figure 1). By comparing Deﬁnition 2 with the deﬁnition of area in Section 5.1, we see that
the deﬁnite integral xab f ͑x͒ dx can be interpreted as the area under the curve y f ͑x͒ from
a to b. (See Figure 2.)

of the rectangles that lie below the x-axis (the areas of the gold rectangles minus the areas
of the blue rectangles). When we take the limit of such Riemann sums, we get the situation illustrated in Figure 4. A deﬁnite integral can be interpreted as a net area, that is, a
difference of areas: FIGURE 3 μ f(x*) Î x is an approximation to

accuracy by a Riemann sum.
Although we have deﬁned xab f ͑x͒ dx by dividing ͓a, b͔ into subintervals of
equal width, there are situations in which it is advantageous to work with subintervals
of unequal width. For instance, in Exercise 14 in Section 5.1 NASA provided velocity data
at times that were not equally spaced, but we were still able to estimate the distance traveled. And there are methods for numerical integration that take advantage of unequal
If the subinterval widths are ⌬x 1, ⌬x 2 , . . . , ⌬x n , we have to ensure that all these widths
approach 0 in the limiting process. This happens if the largest width, max ⌬x i , approaches
0. So in this case the deﬁnition of a deﬁnite integral becomes

recognize limits of sums as integrals, as we did in Example 1. When Leibniz chose the

general, when we write

We often choose the sample point x * to be the right endpoint of the i th subinterval because
it is convenient for computing the limit. But if the purpose is to ﬁnd an approximation to
an integral, it is usually better to choose x * to be the midpoint of the interval, which we
denote by x i . Any Riemann sum is an approximation to an integral, but if we use midpoints
we get the following approximation.

When we deﬁned the deﬁnite integral xab f ͑x͒ dx, we implicitly assumed that a Ͻ b. But the
deﬁnition as a limit of Riemann sums makes sense even if a Ͼ b. Notice that if we reverse
a and b, then ⌬x changes from ͑b Ϫ a͒͞n to ͑a Ϫ b͒͞n. Therefore y a b b f ͑x͒ dx Ϫy f ͑x͒ dx

in a simple manner. We assume that f and t are continuous functions. 5E-05(pp 334-343) 334 ❙❙❙❙ 1/17/06 3:39 PM Page 334 CHAPTER 5 INTEGRALS Properties of the Integral

the length of the interval. If c Ͼ 0 and a Ͻ b, this is to be expected because c͑b Ϫ a͒ is
the area of the shaded rectangle in Figure 13.
Property 2 says that the integral of a sum is the sum of the integrals. For positive functions it says that the area under f ϩ t is the area under f plus the area under t. Figure 14
helps us understand why this is true: In view of how graphical addition works, the corresponding vertical line segments have equal height.
In general, Property 2 follows from Equation 3 and the fact that the limit of a sum is the
sum of the limits: c dx=c(b-a) a y b a x FIG URE 13 j y 4. y=c c y 3. y y y f b a n ͓ f ͑x͒ ϩ t͑x͔͒ dx lim ͚ ͓ f ͑x ͒ ϩ t͑x ͔͒ ⌬x

proved from the deﬁnition of an integral (Exercise 64). Property 7 says that a bigger function has a bigger integral. It follows from Properties 6 and 4 because f Ϫ t ജ 0.

The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus is appropriately named because it establishes a
connection between the two branches of calculus: differential calculus and integral calculus. Differential calculus arose from the tangent problem, whereas integral calculus arose
from a seemingly unrelated problem, the area problem. Newton’s teacher at Cambridge,
Isaac Barrow (1630–1677), discovered that these two problems are actually closely
related. In fact, he realized that differentiation and integration are inverse processes. The
Fundamental Theorem of Calculus gives the precise inverse relationship between the
derivative and the integral. It was Newton and Leibniz who exploited this relationship and
used it to develop calculus into a systematic mathematical method. In particular, they saw
that the Fundamental Theorem enabled them to compute areas and integrals very easily
without having to compute them as limits of sums as we did in Sections 5.1 and 5.2.
The ﬁrst part of the Fundamental Theorem deals with functions deﬁned by an equation
of the form Investigate the area function interactively.

area=© 0 x t͑x͒ y f ͑t͒ dt 1 a x b FIGURE 1 t a where f is a continuous function on ͓a, b͔ and x varies between a and b. Observe that t
depends only on x, which appears as the variable upper limit in the integral. If x is a ﬁxed
number, then the integral xax f ͑t͒ dt is a deﬁnite number. If we then let x vary, the number
xax f ͑t͒ dt also varies and deﬁnes a function of x denoted by t͑x͒.
If f happens to be a positive function, then t͑x͒ can be interpreted as the area under the
graph of f from a to x, where x can vary from a to b. (Think of t as the “area so far” function; see Figure 1.)
EXAMPLE 1 If f is the function whose graph is shown in Figure 2 and t͑x͒ x0x f ͑t͒ dt, ﬁnd the values of t͑0͒, t͑1͒, t͑2͒, t͑3͒, t͑4͒, and t͑5͒. Then sketch a rough graph of t.

positive for t Ͻ 3, we keep adding area for t Ͻ 3 and so t is increasing up to x 3,
where it attains a maximum value. For x Ͼ 3, t decreases because f ͑t͒ is negative. 5 x FIGURE 4
x ©=j f(t) dt If we take f ͑t͒ t and a 0, then, using Exercise 27 in Section 5.2, we have a x t͑x͒ y t dt
0 Notice that tЈ͑x͒ x, that is, tЈ f . In other words, if t is deﬁned as the integral of f by
Equation 1, then t turns out to be an antiderivative of f , at least in this case. And if we
sketch the derivative of the function t shown in Figure 4 by estimating slopes of tangents,
we get a graph like that of f in Figure 2. So we suspect that tЈ f in Example 1 too.
To see why this might be generally true we consider any continuous function f with
f ͑x͒ ജ 0. Then t͑x͒ xax f ͑t͒ dt can be interpreted as the area under the graph of f from
a to x, as in Figure 1.
In order to compute tЈ͑x͒ from the deﬁnition of derivative we ﬁrst observe that,
for h Ͼ 0, t͑x ϩ h͒ Ϫ t͑x͒ is obtained by subtracting areas, so it is the area under the
graph of f from x to x ϩ h (the gold area in Figure 5). For small h you can see from the
ﬁgure that this area is approximately equal to the area of the rectangle with height f ͑x͒ and
width h : y h

for FTC1. ❙❙❙❙ 343 Now we let h l 0. Then u l x and v l x, since u and v lie between x and x ϩ h.
lim f ͑u͒ lim f ͑u͒ f ͑x͒ hl0 u lx and

h If x a or b, then Equation 4 can be interpreted as a one-sided limit. Then Theorem 3.2.4 (modiﬁed for one-sided limits) shows that t is continuous on ͓a, b͔.
Using Leibniz notation for derivatives, we can write FTC1 as
dx y x a f ͑t͒ dt f ͑x͒ when f is continuous. Roughly speaking, Equation 5 says that if we ﬁrst integrate f and
then differentiate the result, we get back to the original function f .
EXAMPLE 2 Find the derivative of the function t͑x͒ y x 0 s1 ϩ t 2 dt. SOLUTION Since f ͑t͒ s1 ϩ t 2 is continuous, Part 1 of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus gives
tЈ͑x͒ s1 ϩ x 2
EXAMPLE 3 Although a formula of the form t͑x͒ xax f ͑t͒ dt may seem like a strange way of deﬁning a function, books on physics, chemistry, and statistics are full of such functions. For instance, the Fresnel function
x S͑x͒ y sin͑ t 2͞2͒ dt
0 is named after the French physicist Augustin Fresnel (1788–1827), who is famous for
his works in optics. This function ﬁrst appeared in Fresnel’s theory of the diffraction of
light waves, but more recently it has been applied to the design of highways.
Part 1 of the Fundamental Theorem tells us how to differentiate the Fresnel function:
SЈ͑x͒ sin͑ x 2͞2͒
This means that we can apply all the methods of differential calculus to analyze S (see
Exercise 49). 5E-05(pp 344-353) 344 ❙❙❙❙ 1/17/06 3:44 PM Page 344 CHAPTER 5 INTEGRALS Figure 7 shows the graphs of f ͑x͒ sin͑ x 2͞2͒ and the Fresnel function
S͑x͒ x0x f ͑t͒ dt. A computer was used to graph S by computing the value of this integral
for many values of x. It does indeed look as if S͑x͒ is the area under the graph of f from
0 to x [until x Ϸ 1.4 when S͑x͒ becomes a difference of areas]. Figure 8 shows a larger
part of the graph of S.

In Section 5.2 we computed integrals from the deﬁnition as a limit of Riemann sums
and we saw that this procedure is sometimes long and difﬁcult. The second part of the
Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, which follows easily from the ﬁrst part, provides us
with a much simpler method for the evaluation of integrals.
The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, Part 2 If f is continuous on ͓a, b͔, then
|||| We abbreviate this theorem as FTC2. y b a f ͑x͒ dx F͑b͒ Ϫ F͑a͒ where F is any antiderivative of f , that is, a function such that FЈ f . 5E-05(pp 344-353) 1/17/06 3:44 PM Page 345 SECTION 5.3 THE FUNDAMENTAL THEOREM OF CALCULUS Proof Let t͑x͒ ❙❙❙❙ 345 xax f ͑t͒ dt. We know from Part 1 that tЈ͑x͒ f ͑x͒; that is, t is an anti- derivative of f . If F is any other antiderivative of f on ͓a, b͔, then we know from
Corollary 4.2.7 that F and t differ by a constant:
F͑x͒ t͑x͒ ϩ C 6 for a Ͻ x Ͻ b. But both F and t are continuous on ͓a, b͔ and so, by taking limits of both
sides of Equation 6 (as x l aϩ and x l bϪ ), we see that it also holds when x a and
If we put x a in the formula for t͑x͒, we get
a t͑a͒ y f ͑t͒ dt 0
a So, using Equation 6 with x b and x a, we have
F͑b͒ Ϫ F͑a͒ ͓t͑b͒ ϩ C͔ Ϫ ͓t͑a͒ ϩ C͔
b t͑b͒ Ϫ t͑a͒ t͑b͒ y f ͑t͒ dt
a Part 2 of the Fundamental Theorem states that if we know an antiderivative F of f , then
we can evaluate xab f ͑x͒ dx simply by subtracting the values of F at the endpoints of the
interval ͓a, b͔. It’s very surprising that xab f ͑x͒ dx, which was deﬁned by a complicated procedure involving all of the values of f ͑x͒ for a ഛ x ഛ b, can be found by knowing the values of F͑x͒ at only two points, a and b.
Although the theorem may be surprising at ﬁrst glance, it becomes plausible if we interpret it in physical terms. If v͑t͒ is the velocity of an object and s͑t͒ is its position at time t,
then v͑t͒ sЈ͑t͒, so s is an antiderivative of v. In Section 5.1 we considered an object that
always moves in the positive direction and made the guess that the area under the velocity
curve is equal to the distance traveled. In symbols: y b a v͑t͒ dt s͑b͒ Ϫ s͑a͒ That is exactly what FTC2 says in this context.
EXAMPLE 5 Evaluate the integral y 1 Ϫ2 x 3 dx. SOLUTION The function f ͑x͒ x 3 is continuous on ͓Ϫ2, 1͔ and we know from Sec- tion 4.10 that an antiderivative is F͑x͒ 4 x 4, so Part 2 of the Fundamental Theorem
1 y 1 Ϫ2 x 3 dx F͑1͒ Ϫ F͑Ϫ2͒ 1 ͑1͒4 Ϫ 1 ͑Ϫ2͒4 Ϫ 15
4 Notice that FTC2 says we can use any antiderivative F of f. So we may as well use
the simplest one, namely F͑x͒ 4 x 4, instead of 4 x 4 ϩ 7 or 4 x 4 ϩ C.
We often use the notation F͑x͒ b
a F͑b͒ Ϫ F͑a͒ 5E-05(pp 344-353) 346 ❙❙❙❙ 1/17/06 3:44 PM Page 346 CHAPTER 5 INTEGRALS So the equation of FTC2 can be written as y b a f ͑x͒ dx F͑x͒ Other common notations are F͑x͒ Խ b

and ͓F͑x͔͒ a . EXAMPLE 6 Find the area under the parabola y x 2 from 0 to 1.
SOLUTION An antiderivative of f ͑x͒ x 2 is F͑x͒ 3 x 3. The required area A is found
1 using Part 2 of the Fundamental Theorem:

0 sin b Ϫ sin 0 sin b In particular, taking b ͞2, we have proved that the area under the cosine curve
from 0 to ͞2 is sin͑͞2͒ 1. (See Figure 9.) FIGURE 9 When the French mathematician Gilles de Roberval ﬁrst found the area under the sine
and cosine curves in 1635, this was a very challenging problem that required a great deal
of ingenuity. If we didn’t have the beneﬁt of the Fundamental Theorem, we would have to
compute a difﬁcult limit of sums using obscure trigonometric identities (or a computer
algebra system as in Exercise 25 in Section 5.1). It was even more difﬁcult for Roberval
because the apparatus of limits had not been invented in 1635. But in the 1660s and 1670s,
when the Fundamental Theorem was discovered by Barrow and exploited by Newton and
Leibniz, such problems became very easy, as you can see from Example 7.
EXAMPLE 8 What is wrong with the following calculation? | y 3 Ϫ1 1

3 SOLUTION To start, we notice that this calculation must be wrong because the answer is
negative but f ͑x͒ 1͞x 2 ജ 0 and Property 6 of integrals says that xab f ͑x͒ dx ജ 0 when
f ജ 0. The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus applies to continuous functions. It can’t
be applied here because f ͑x͒ 1͞x 2 is not continuous on ͓Ϫ1, 3͔. In fact, f has an inﬁnite discontinuity at x 0, so y 3 Ϫ1 1

2. y b a y x a f ͑t͒ dt, then tЈ͑x͒ f ͑x͒. f ͑x͒ dx F͑b͒ Ϫ F͑a͒, where F is any antiderivative of f , that is, FЈ f . We noted that Part 1 can be rewritten as
dx y x a f ͑t͒ dt f ͑x͒ which says that if f is integrated and then the result is differentiated, we arrive back at the
original function f . Since FЈ͑x͒ f ͑x͒, Part 2 can be rewritten as y b a FЈ͑x͒ dx F͑b͒ Ϫ F͑a͒ This version says that if we take a function F , ﬁrst differentiate it, and then integrate the
result, we arrive back at the original function F , but in the form F͑b͒ Ϫ F͑a͒. Taken
together, the two parts of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus say that differentiation
and integration are inverse processes. Each undoes what the other does.
The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus is unquestionably the most important theorem
in calculus and, indeed, it ranks as one of the great accomplishments of the human mind.
Before it was discovered, from the time of Eudoxus and Archimedes to the time of Galileo
and Fermat, problems of ﬁnding areas, volumes, and lengths of curves were so difﬁcult
that only a genius could meet the challenge. But now, armed with the systematic method
that Newton and Leibniz fashioned out of the Fundamental Theorem, we will see in the
chapters to come that these challenging problems are accessible to all of us. |||| 5.3 Exercises 1. Explain exactly what is meant by the statement that “differenti- ation and integration are inverse processes.”

■ ■ ■ ■ Indefinite Integrals and the Net Change Theorem
We saw in Section 5.3 that the second part of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus provides a very powerful method for evaluating the deﬁnite integral of a function, assuming
that we can ﬁnd an antiderivative of the function. In this section we introduce a notation
for antiderivatives, review the formulas for antiderivatives, and use them to evaluate deﬁnite integrals. We also reformulate FTC2 in a way that makes it easier to apply to science
and engineering problems. 5E-05(pp 344-353) 1/17/06 3:46 PM Page 351 SECTION 5.4 INDEFINITE INTEGRALS AND THE NET CHANGE THEOREM ❙❙❙❙ 351 Indefinite Integrals
Both parts of the Fundamental Theorem establish connections between antiderivatives and
deﬁnite integrals. Part 1 says that if f is continuous, then xax f ͑t͒ dt is an antiderivative of f.
Part 2 says that xab f ͑x͒ dx can be found by evaluating F͑b͒ Ϫ F͑a͒, where F is an antiderivative of f.
We need a convenient notation for antiderivatives that makes them easy to work with.
Because of the relation given by the Fundamental Theorem between antiderivatives and
integrals, the notation x f ͑x͒ dx is traditionally used for an antiderivative of f and is called
an indeﬁnite integral. Thus y f ͑x͒ dx F͑x͒ FЈ͑x͒ f ͑x͒ means For example, we can write yx 2 dx x3
dx because ͩ ͪ x3
ϩ C x2
3 So we can regard an indeﬁnite integral as representing an entire family of functions (one
antiderivative for each value of the constant C).
| You should distinguish carefully between deﬁnite and indeﬁnite integrals. A deﬁnite
integral xab f ͑x͒ dx is a number, whereas an indeﬁnite integral x f ͑x͒ dx is a function (or
family of functions). The connection between them is given by Part 2 of the Fundamental
Theorem. If f is continuous on ͓a, b͔, then y b a f ͑x͒ dx y f ͑x͒ dx b
a The effectiveness of the Fundamental Theorem depends on having a supply of antiderivatives of functions. We therefore restate the Table of Antidifferentiation Formulas
from Section 4.10, together with a few others, in the notation of indeﬁnite integrals. Any
formula can be veriﬁed by differentiating the function on the right side and obtaining the
integrand. For instance y sec x dx tan x ϩ C

obtained by adding a constant to a particular antiderivative. We adopt the convention that
when a formula for a general indeﬁnite integral is given, it is valid only on an interval. Thus, we write
y x 2 dx Ϫ x ϩ C
with the understanding that it is valid on the interval ͑0, ϱ͒ or on the interval ͑Ϫϱ, 0͒. This
is true despite the fact that the general antiderivative of the function f ͑x͒ 1͞x 2, x 0, is

Part 2 of the Fundamental Theorem says that if f is continuous on ͓a, b͔, then y b a f ͑x͒ dx F͑b͒ Ϫ F͑a͒ where F is any antiderivative of f. This means that FЈ f , so the equation can be rewritten as y b a FЈ͑x͒ dx F͑b͒ Ϫ F͑a͒ We know that FЈ͑x͒ represents the rate of change of y F͑x͒ with respect to x and
F͑b͒ Ϫ F͑a͒ is the change in y when x changes from a to b. [Note that y could, for instance,
increase, then decrease, then increase again. Although y might change in both directions,
F͑b͒ Ϫ F͑a͒ represents the net change in y.] So we can reformulate FTC2 in words as
follows. 5E-05(pp 354-363) 354 ❙❙❙❙ 1/17/06 3:47 PM Page 354 CHAPTER 5 INTEGRALS The Net Change Theorem The integral of a rate of change is the net change: y b a FЈ͑x͒ dx F͑b͒ Ϫ F͑a͒ This principle can be applied to all of the rates of change in the natural and social sciences that we discussed in Section 3.4. Here are a few instances of this idea:
■ If V͑t͒ is the volume of water in a reservoir at time t, then its derivative VЈ͑t͒ is
the rate at which water ﬂows into the reservoir at time t. So y t2 t1 VЈ͑t͒ dt V͑t2 ͒ Ϫ V͑t1 ͒ is the change in the amount of water in the reservoir between time t1 and time t2 .
■ If ͓C͔͑t͒ is the concentration of the product of a chemical reaction at time t, then
the rate of reaction is the derivative d͓C͔͞dt. So y d͓C͔
dt ͓C͔͑t2 ͒ Ϫ ͓C͔͑t1 ͒

and concave upward. The points on this curve are determined
by ranking all households by income and then computing the

example, the point ͑a͞100, b͞100͒ is on the Lorenz curve if the
bottom a% of the households receive less than or equal to b%
of the total income. Absolute equality of income distribution
would occur if the bottom a% of the households receive a% of

Newton, Leibniz, and the Invention of Calculus
We sometimes read that the inventors of calculus were Sir Isaac Newton (1642–1727) and
Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646–1716). But we know that the basic ideas behind integration
were investigated 2500 years ago by ancient Greeks such as Eudoxus and Archimedes, and methods for ﬁnding tangents were pioneered by Pierre Fermat (1601–1665), Isaac Barrow (1630–1677),
and others. Barrow, Newton’s teacher at Cambridge, was the ﬁrst to understand the inverse relationship between differentiation and integration. What Newton and Leibniz did was to use this
relationship, in the form of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, in order to develop calculus
into a systematic mathematical discipline. It is in this sense that Newton and Leibniz are credited
with the invention of calculus.
Read about the contributions of these men in one or more of the given references and write a
report on one of the following three topics. You can include biographical details, but the main
thrust of your report should be a description, in some detail, of their methods and notations. In
particular, you should consult one of the sourcebooks, which give excerpts from the original
publications of Newton and Leibniz, translated from Latin to English.

Because of the Fundamental Theorem, it’s important to be able to ﬁnd antiderivatives. But
our antidifferentiation formulas don’t tell us how to evaluate integrals such as y 2xs1 ϩ x 1 |||| Differentials were deﬁned in Section 3.10.
If u f ͑x͒, then du f Ј͑x͒ dx 2 dx To ﬁnd this integral we use the problem-solving strategy of introducing something extra.
Here the “something extra” is a new variable; we change from the variable x to a new variable u. Suppose that we let u be the quantity under the root sign in (1), u 1 ϩ x 2. Then
the differential of u is du 2x dx. Notice that if the dx in the notation for an integral were
to be interpreted as a differential, then the differential 2x dx would occur in (1) and, so,
formally, without justifying our calculation, we could write y 2xs1 ϩ x 2 2 dx y s1 ϩ x 2 2x dx y su du
2 u 3͞2 ϩ C 2 ͑x 2 ϩ 1͒3͞2 ϩ C
3 But now we can check that we have the correct answer by using the Chain Rule to differentiate the ﬁnal function of Equation 2:
dx [ 2 ͑x 2 ϩ 1͒3͞2 ϩ C] 2 ؒ 3 ͑x 2 ϩ 1͒1͞2 ؒ 2x 2xsx 2 ϩ 1
2 In general, this method works whenever we have an integral that we can write in the
form x f ͑t͑x͒͒tЈ͑x͒ dx. Observe that if FЈ f , then
3 y FЈ͑t͑x͒͒tЈ͑x͒ dx F͑t͑x͒͒ ϩ C 5E-05(pp 354-363) 1/17/06 3:49 PM Page 361 SECTION 5.5 THE SUBSTITUTION RULE ❙❙❙❙ 361 because, by the Chain Rule,
If we make the “change of variable” or “substitution” u t͑x͒, then from Equation 3
we have y FЈ͑t͑x͒͒tЈ͑x͒ dx F͑t͑x͒͒ ϩ C F͑u͒ ϩ C y FЈ͑u͒ du
or, writing FЈ f , we get y f ͑t͑x͒͒tЈ͑x͒ dx y f ͑u͒ du
Thus, we have proved the following rule.
4 The Substitution Rule If u t͑x͒ is a differentiable function whose range is an
interval I and f is continuous on I , then y f ͑t͑x͒͒tЈ͑x͒ dx y f ͑u͒ du
Notice that the Substitution Rule for integration was proved using the Chain Rule for
differentiation. Notice also that if u t͑x͒, then du tЈ͑x͒ dx, so a way to remember the
Substitution Rule is to think of dx and du in (4) as differentials.
Thus, the Substitution Rule says: It is permissible to operate with dx and du after
integral signs as if they were differentials. EXAMPLE 1 Find yx 3 cos͑x 4 ϩ 2͒ dx. SOLUTION We make the substitution u x 4 ϩ 2 because its differential is du 4x 3 dx, which, apart from the constant factor 4, occurs in the integral. Thus, using x 3 dx du͞4
and the Substitution Rule, we have yx 3 cos͑x 4 ϩ 2͒ dx y cos u ؒ 1 du 1 y cos u du
1 sin u ϩ C
1 sin͑x 4 ϩ 2͒ ϩ C
4 |||| Check the answer by differentiating it. Notice that at the ﬁnal stage we had to return to the original variable x.
The idea behind the Substitution Rule is to replace a relatively complicated integral
by a simpler integral. This is accomplished by changing from the original variable x to
a new variable u that is a function of x. Thus, in Example 1 we replaced the integral
x x 3 cos͑x 4 ϩ 2͒ dx by the simpler integral 1 x cos u du.
The main challenge in using the Substitution Rule is to think of an appropriate substitution. You should try to choose u to be some function in the integrand whose differential
also occurs (except for a constant factor). This was the case in Example 1. If that is not 5E-05(pp 354-363) 362 ❙❙❙❙ 1/17/06 3:49 PM Page 362 CHAPTER 5 INTEGRALS possible, try choosing u to be some complicated part of the integrand. Finding the right
substitution is a bit of an art. It’s not unusual to guess wrong; if your ﬁrst guess doesn’t
work, try another substitution.

The answer to Example 3 could be checked by differentiation, but instead let’s check
it with a graph. In Figure 1 we have used a computer to graph both the integrand
f ͑x͒ x͞s1 Ϫ 4x 2 and its indeﬁnite integral t͑x͒ Ϫ 1 s1 Ϫ 4x 2 (we take the case
C 0). Notice that t͑x͒ decreases when f ͑x͒ is negative, increases when f ͑x͒ is positive,
and has its minimum value when f ͑x͒ 0. So it seems reasonable, from the graphical evidence, that t is an antiderivative of f .

When evaluating a deﬁnite integral by substitution, two methods are possible. One method
is to evaluate the indeﬁnite integral ﬁrst and then use the Fundamental Theorem. For
instance, using the result of Example 2, we have y 4 0 4 s2x ϩ 1 dx y s2x ϩ 1 dx 0 4 1 ͑2x ϩ 1͒3͞2
3 0 1 ͑9͒3͞2 Ϫ 1 ͑1͒3͞2 1 ͑27 Ϫ 1͒ 26
Another method, which is usually preferable, is to change the limits of integration when
the variable is changed.
|||| This rule says that when using a substitution
in a deﬁnite integral, we must put everything in
terms of the new variable u, not only x and dx
but also the limits of integration. The new limits
of integration are the values of u that correspond
to x a and x b. 5 The Substitution Rule for Definite Integrals If tЈ is continuous on ͓a, b͔ and f is continuous on the range of u t͑x͒, then y b a f ͑t͑x͒͒tЈ͑x͒ dx y t͑b͒ t͑a͒ f ͑u͒ du Proof Let F be an antiderivative of f . Then, by (3), F͑t͑x͒͒ is an antiderivative of f ͑t͑x͒͒tЈ͑x͒, so by Part 2 of the Fundamental Theorem, we have y b a b f ͑t͑x͒͒tЈ͑x͒ dx F͑t͑x͒͒ a F͑t͑b͒͒ Ϫ F͑t͑a͒͒ But, applying FTC2 a second time, we also have y t͑b͒ t͑a͒ EXAMPLE 6 Evaluate y 4 0 f ͑u͒ du F͑u͒ t͑b͒

The next theorem uses the Substitution Rule for Deﬁnite Integrals (5) to simplify the calculation of integrals of functions that possess symmetry properties.
6 Integrals of Symmetric Functions Suppose f is continuous on ͓Ϫa, a͔. a
(a) If f is even ͓ f ͑Ϫx͒ f ͑x͔͒, then xϪa f ͑x͒ dx 2 x0a f ͑x͒ dx.
(b) If f is odd ͓ f ͑Ϫx͒ Ϫf ͑x͔͒, then xϪa f ͑x͒ dx 0. Proof We split the integral in two:
7 y a Ϫa 0 a f ͑x͒ dx y f ͑x͒ dx ϩ y f ͑x͒ dx Ϫy
Ϫa 0 Ϫa 0 a f ͑x͒ dx ϩ y f ͑x͒ dx

0 0 and so Equation 7 becomes y 8 a Ϫa a a f ͑x͒ dx y f ͑Ϫu͒ du ϩ y f ͑x͒ dx
0 0 (a) If f is even, then f ͑Ϫu͒ f ͑u͒ so Equation 8 gives y a a Ϫa a a f ͑x͒ dx y f ͑u͒ du ϩ y f ͑x͒ dx 2 y f ͑x͒ dx
0 0 0 (b) If f is odd, then f ͑Ϫu͒ Ϫf ͑u͒ and so Equation 8 gives y a Ϫa y _a 0 a a x a 0 _a Theorem 6 is illustrated by Figure 3. For the case where f is positive and even, part (a)
says that the area under y f ͑x͒ from Ϫa to a is twice the area from 0 to a because of
symmetry. Recall that an integral xab f ͑x͒ dx can be expressed as the area above the x-axis
and below y f ͑x͒ minus the area below the axis and above the curve. Thus, part (b) says
the integral is 0 because the areas cancel.

t SOLUTION Let’s start by having a preliminary look at the ingredients of the function. What
happens to the ﬁrst factor, x͑͞x Ϫ 3͒, when x approaches 3? The numerator approaches 3
and the denominator approaches 0, so we have x
l ϱ as
xϪ3 |||| The principles of problem solving are
discussed on page 58. x l 3ϩ x
xϪ3 and as x l 3Ϫ The second factor approaches x33 ͑sin t͒͞t dt, which is 0. It’s not clear what happens to the
function as a whole. (One factor is becoming large while the other is becoming small.)
So how do we proceed?
One of the principles of problem solving is recognizing something familiar. Is there a
part of the function that reminds us of something we’ve seen before? Well, the integral y x 3 sin t
t has x as its upper limit of integration and that type of integral occurs in Part 1 of the
Fundamental Theorem of Calculus:
dx y x a f ͑t͒ dt f ͑x͒ This suggests that differentiation might be involved.
Once we start thinking about differentiation, the denominator ͑x Ϫ 3͒ reminds us of
something else that should be familiar: One of the forms of the deﬁnition of the derivative in Chapter 3 is
F͑x͒ Ϫ F͑a͒
and with a 3 this becomes
x l3 F͑x͒ Ϫ F͑3͒
xϪ3 So what is the function F in our situation? Notice that if we deﬁne
F͑x͒ y x 3 sin t
t then F͑3͒ 0. What about the factor x in the numerator? That’s just a red herring, so
let’s factor it out and put together the calculation: lim
x l3 |||| Another approach is to use l’Hospital’s Rule. 372 ͩ x

In this problem we approximate the sine function on the interval ͓0, ͔ by three quadratic ; functions, each of which has the same zeros as the sine function on this interval.
(a) Find a quadratic function f such that f ͑0͒ f ͑͒ 0 and which has the same maximum
value as sin on ͓0, ͔.
(b) Find a quadratic function t such that t͑0͒ t͑͒ 0 and which has the same rate of
change as the sine function at 0 and .
(c) Find a quadratic function h such that h͑0͒ h͑͒ 0 and the area under h from 0 to is
the same as for the sine function.
