Applications of Integral Calculus

Integral calculus is the study of mathematical integration dealing with integrals. These integrals, also known as area under the curve, are used to determine the following: areas, volumes, and lengths. There are a multitude of areas of real-world mathematics to which integral calculus is used. Integration is most often applied in physics, biology, and even chemistry. Integration is applied to physics in many situations. One important situation is finding the moment of inertia. The moment of inertia...

Newton Is the Father Os Calculus

Like most discoveries, calculus was the culmination of centuries of work rather than an instant epiphany. Mathematicians all over the world contributed to its development, but the two most recognized discoverers of calculus are Isaac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. Although the credit is currently given to both men, there was a time when the debate over which of them truly deserved the recognition was both heated and widespread. Evidence also shows that Newton was the first to establish...

Academic Strengths

previously jaded outlook on math was transformed into an attitude that would allow me to get the grade I desired. The following year, I moved on to Pre-Calculus. In this class, I used everything I learned from Mrs. Robison regarding math and whenever it applied to everday life. I was to finish the class with an A average. This year I am in AP Calculus and I have the privilege of having Mrs. Robison again. I am maintaining an A in this class so far; and I look forward to exercising my greatest academic...

Rolle's Theorem

calculus, Rolle's theorem essentially states that a differentiable function which attains equal values at two distinct points must have a point somewhere between them where the first derivative (the slope of the tangent line to the graph of the function) is zero. ------------------------------------------------- Standard version of the theorem [edit] If a real-valued function f is continuous on a closed interval [a, b], differentiable on the open interval (a, b), and f(a) = f(b), then there...

Isaac Newton

thinking. The last set of paragraphs explains his laws of motion, what they are, and an example as well as how they connect with his Universal Law of gravity. Isaac Newton was a very influential person in history that is now looked at as the creator of calculus and a key person in the creation of physics. Now it is your turn to take a deeper look into Newton growing up, discovering new ideas, his accomplishments and what he found. Isaac Newton was born on Christmas day, 1642 in Lincolnshire. (It would...
