EGR 1101: Unit 10 Lecture #1 The Integral (Sections 9.1, 9.2 of Rattan/Klingbeil text)
Antiderivative Suppose f(x) is the derivative of F(x). Then F(x) is an antiderivative of f(x). Example: 3x 2 is the derivative of x 3, so x 3 is an antiderivative of 3x 2
A Function Has Many Antiderivatives 3x 2 has many antiderivatives. One of them is x 3. Another one is x 3 + 1. Another one is x 3 + 2. In fact, 3x 2 has infinitely many antiderivatives of the form x 3 + C, where C is any constant.
The dx symbol The symbol for antiderivative is dx. Read this as “antiderivative with respect to x.” For example, we write This means exactly the same thing as
Indefinite Integral Another name for antiderivative is indefinite integral. So we can also read as “The indefinite integral with respect to x of 3x 2 is x 3 + C.”
Table of Integrals Just as we use a table of derivatives to differentiate functions, we use a table of integrals to integrate functions. Many of the entries in a table of integrals are just the “reverse” of corresponding entries in a table of derivatives.
Differentiation and Indefinite Integration Cancel Each Other Differentiation and indefinite integration are inverse operations, which means they cancel each other. So and
Definite Integration The definite integral of a function f(x) from a to b is the area under the graph of that function between x=a and x=b. The symbol for definite integration is
Connection Between Definite Integration and Antiderivative According to the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, where F(x) is an antiderivative of f(x). We use the following shorthand notation:
Review: A Little History Seventeenth-century mathematicians faced at least four big problems that required new techniques: 1. Slope of a curve 2. Rates of change (such as velocity and acceleration) 3. Maxima and minima of functions 4. Area under a curve
Using MATLAB to Integrate the Hard Part of Example #1 >> syms x >> int(sqrt(2500-(x-50)^2), 0, 50)
Using MATLAB to Plot the Curves in Example #2 >> fplot('2*x^2+3*x+4', [0 1 0 100]) >> hold on >> fplot('2*sin(pi/2*x)+3*cos(pi/2*x)', [0 1 0 100], 'g') >> fplot('4*exp(pi*x)', [0 1 0 100], 'r')

Today’s Examples 1. Centroid of a right triangle 2. Distributed load on a beam
Centroid An area’s centroid is the point located at the “weighted-average” position of all points in the area. For objects of uniform density, the centroid is the same as the object’s center of mass.
Centroids of Simple 2D Shapes For a 2D planar lamina (very thin, rigid sheet of wood, metal, plastic, etc.), the centroid (denoted G) is the point at which you can balance it on your fingertip.
Unweighted Average Position For n discrete objects located in a plane at coordinates (x 1, y 1 ), (x 2, y 2 ), …, (x n, y n ), the unweighted average position is:
Weighted Average Position For n discrete objects located in a plane at coordinates (x 1, y 1 ), (x 2, y 2 ), …, (x n, y n ), with weights p 1, p 2, … p n, the weighted average position is:
Position of Centroid For the area under a curve y(x) from x=a to x=b, the coordinates of the area’s centroid are given by
Position of Centroid (Using y-axis) For the area under a curve x(y) from y=a to y=b, the x and y coordinates of the area’s centroid are given by
Statically Equivalent Loads Two loads on a beam are statically equivalent if 1. they exert the same downward force, and 2. they exert the same moment (tendency to rotate the beam) about any point.
Example of Two Statically Equivalent Loads Case 1 Case 2 Same downward force and same moment (tendency to rotate) in both cases, so these are statically equivalent. 25 lb 50 lb 25 lb
Example of Two Loads That Are Not Statically Equivalent Case 1 Case 2 Same downward force in both cases, but different moments (tendencies to rotate), so these are not statically equivalent. 50 lb
Moment of a Force The moment of a force about a point is defined as the magnitude of the force times its distance from the point. On previous slide, moment about the center point is zero in Case 2, but is nonzero in Case 1.
Finding Statically Equivalent Load Problem: For a distributed load described by load curve w(x), find the size R and the location l of a concentrated load that is statically equivalent to the distributed load. Solution: R is the area under the load curve. l is the x-coordinate of the centroid of the area under the load curve.
Static Equilibrium(Again) In Unit 4 we saw that for a system in static equilibrium, the external forces acting on the object add to zero: The other condition required for static equilibrium is that the moments of the external forces about any point add to zero:
