There are 2 major branches of calculus, differential calculus, which determines the rate of change of a quantity; and integral calculus, which finds the quantity when the rate of change is known. However, calculus as we know it has a lot more applications than just finding the rate of change, or the quantity. It has more practical applications in life. By understanding how a phenomena that we can’t control respond to factors we can, we can try to predict how the phenomena will affect us and our environs. Some of the phenomena we can use calculus to help predict include: weather prediction, biological applications and compression. Weather Prediction Meteorology as we know it today is a “marriage” between physics and calculus. Modern meteorology has evolved past mere weather predictions. It has evolved to include such areas as
