Unformatted text preview: Antiderivatives and Antiderivatives and Indefinite Indefinite Integration Integration Section 4-1 Antiderivatives Antiderivatives Find a function F whose derivative is f(x) = 3x 2 You probably said that F(x) = x 3 because F is called an antiderivative of f. Observe that F 1 (x) = x 3 , F 2 (x) = x 3 + 5, and F 3 (x) = x 3 + 97 are all antiderivatives of f .

If f(x) = 2x Then G(x) = x 2 + C is the family of all antiderivatives of f(x)= 2x C is the constant of integration. The family of functions represented by G is the general antiderivative of f , and G(x) = x 2 + C is the general solution of the differential eqn. G (x) = 2x.
