2. Integral as an antiderivative - section 2-8
Given the velocity as a function of time ( ), the position as a function of time ( ) is
() ∫ () where c is an arbitrary constant. The integral of a function can therefore be defined as an antiderivative
– the integral of a function results in a new function, such that when I take the derivative of this new
function I end up with the function I am integrati...
