MAC2311, Calculus I 4.9 Antiderivatives Definition: A function F is called an antiderivative of f on an interval I if F’(x) = f(x) for all x in I . Theorem: If F is an antiderivative of f on an interval I , then the most general antiderivative of f on I is F(x) + C where C is an arbitrary constant. In general, if you are looking for the antiderivative of a function, you are really asking, “What function is this the derivative for?”

Unformatted text preview: Here’s are a few examples: Let f(x) = cos(x). Since cos(x) is the derivative of the sin(x), then F(x) = sin(x) + C Let f(x) = 2x , so F(x) = x 2 + C Take a look at the handout with all of the derivative formulas to see the “antiderivative” formulas.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
