Unformatted text preview: such information. …it’s FUNdamental! :] The fundamental theorem of calculus can be applied to the graph above of velocity control technology to find the net change in speed as well as to find the area of the blue space under the graph. The net change in speed can be found in this way: s’(t) = v(t) , [ , 3 ] s(t) = ∫ 3 ) ( dt t v ) ( ) 3 ( ) ( 3 s s dt t v-= ∫ = 0.25 – 0 = 0.25 The net change in speed is 0.25...
