I NTEGRATION WITH A B OUNDARY C ONDITION AND T HE D EFINITE I NTEGRAL Initial Value Problems When we integrate a function ) ( x f we get a family of functions C x F + ) ( , but sometimes we are interested in one particular function. We can identify this function by specifying a specific point it passes through. Ex . 2 2 3 ) ( x x x f - + = 1 ) 0 ( = F This question can also be presented as 2 2 3 x x dx dy - + = 1 ) 0 ( = y Where the unknown is not a number, but a function. This type of problem (involving the derivative of an unknown function) is called a differential equation. The Definite Integral Area Interpretation positive area 1 A 3 A a 2 A b negative area Total Area = Area over x -axis – Area under x -axis = 2 3 1 A A A - +
