The most general and correct concept is : the indefinite integr al indefinite integ indef F(x) is always the expression of CHANGE. When we evaluate the indefinite integral indefinite F(x) over a given interval and in a given direction, the value or number we get is called the change . change 168 We have three points of view : Calculation Calculation : ANTIDERIVATIVE = ∫ DERIVATIVE . y(t) = ANTI-DERIVATIVE of y ’(t) = ∫ y’(t).dt F(x) = ∫ f (x)dx where f(x) = F’(x) FC(x) = F(x) + C Geometric : area curv area under the cur ve of the INSTANTANEOUS RATE OF CHANGE ar area curv y(t) = area under the cur ve y’(t) = ar y’(t). dt . area curv F(x) = area under the cur ve ar Analytical Analytical : ∫ ∫ f (x)dx f(x) = EXPRESSION OF CHANGE = ∫ INSTANTANEOUS RATE OF CHANGE t2 CHANGE in y(t) over [t1, t2] = y(t2) − y(t1) = ∫ t y’(t). dt . 1 F(x) = ∫ f (x)dx the indefinite integral indefinite b ∫ a f(x)dx = F(b) − F(a) = CHANGE in F(x) from a to b is the definite integral . definite A function F(x) is an e x p r ession of CHANGE.
