Lecture 20 18.01 Fall 2006 Lecture 20: Second Fundamental Theorem Recall: First Fundamental Theorem of Calculus (FTC 1) If f is continuous and F = f , then b f ( x ) dx = F ( b ) F ( a ) a We can also write that as b x = b f ( x ) dx = f ( x ) dx x = a a Do all continuous functions have antiderivatives? Yes. However... What about a function like this? 2 e x dx =?? Yes, this antiderivative exists. No, its not a function weve met before: its a new function. The new function is defined as an integral: x 2 F ( x ) = e t dt 2 It will have the property that F ( x ) = e x . sin x 1 / 2 Other new functions include antiderivatives of e x 2 ,x e x 2 , , sin( x 2 ) , cos( x 2 ) ,... x Second Fundamental Theorem of Calculus (FTC 2) x If F ( x ) = f ( t ) dt and f is continuous, then a F ( x ) = f ( x ) Geometric Proof of FTC 2 : Use the...
