Section 7.2a Area between curves

2
Area Between Curves Suppose we want to know the area of a region that is bounded above by one curve, y = f(x), and below by another, y = g(x): Upper curve First, we partition the region into vertical strips of equal width and approximate each strip as a rectangle with area a b Note: This expression will be non-negative even if the region lies below the x-axis. Lower curve

Area Between Curves Suppose we want to know the area of a region that is bounded above by one curve, y = f(x), and below by another, y = g(x): Upper curve We can approximate the area of the region with the Riemann sum a b The limit of these sums as is Lower curve

**Definition: Area Between Curves**

If f and g are continuous with throughout [a, b], then the area between the curves y = f(x) and y = g(x) from a to b is the integral of [f – g] from a to b,

**Guided Practice Find the area of the region enclosed by the parabola**

and the line The graph: To find our limits of integration (a and b), we need to solve the system Algebraically, or by calculator: a b

8
**Guided Practice Find the area of the region enclosed by the parabola**

and the line Because the parabola lies above the line, we have The graph: a b units squared

**Guided Practice Find the area of the region enclosed by the graphs of**

and The graph: To find our limits of integration (a and b), we need to solve the system Solve graphically: a b Store the negative value as A and the positive value as B.
