• The deﬁnite integral as a limit Deﬁnition If f is a function deﬁned on [a, b], the deﬁnite integral of f from a to b is the number b n f (x) dx = lim f (ci ) ∆x a n→∞ i=1 b−a where ∆x = , and for each i, xi = a + i∆x, and ci is a point in n [xi−1 , xi ]. Theorem If f is continuous on [a, b] or if f has only ﬁnitely many jump discontinuities, then f is integrable on [a, b]; that is, the deﬁnite integral b f (x) dx exists and is the same for any choice of ci . a V63.0121.002.2010Su, Calculus I (NYU) Section 5.3 Evaluating Deﬁnite Integrals June 21, 2010 6 / 44

• Interpretation of “negative area” in motion There is an analog in rectlinear motion: t1 v (t) dt is net distance traveled. t0 t1 |v (t)| dt is total distance traveled. t0 V63.0121.002.2010Su, Calculus I (NYU) Section 5.3 Evaluating Deﬁnite Integrals June 21, 2010 42 / 44
• What about the constant? It seems we forgot about the +C when we say for instance 1 1 x4 1 1 x 3 dx = = −0= 0 4 0 4 4 But notice 1 x4 1 1 1 +C = +C − (0 + C ) = +C −C = 4 0 4 4 4 no matter what C is. So in antidiﬀerentiation for deﬁnite integrals, the constant is immaterial. V63.0121.002.2010Su, Calculus I (NYU) Section 5.3 Evaluating Deﬁnite Integrals June 21, 2010 43 / 44
• Summary The second Fundamental Theorem of Calculus: b f (x) dx = F (b) − F (a) a where F = f . Deﬁnite integrals represent net change of a function over an interval. We write antiderivatives as indeﬁnite integrals f (x) dx V63.0121.002.2010Su, Calculus I (NYU) Section 5.3 Evaluating Deﬁnite Integrals June 21, 2010 44 / 44
