Can any one explain me about Integrals and derivatives in breif

  1. Oct 4, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    can any one explain me about Integrals and derivatives in brief

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    A good reference to understand graphically what is happening can be found here http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/math/derint.html" [Broken].

    You seem to be asking for the equivalent of several university level lecture courses. Sadly, this is impossible in a forum setting such as this. You might try searching for some relevant lecture notes on the internet, in particular, MIT's site is extremely useful: http://ocw.mit.edu/index.htm

    I'll try. You know that an equation can be plotted on a set of x-y axes. Well, the derivative of that equation at any value of x tells you the slope of that graph at that value of x (so this saves you having to draw the graph and trying to work out the approximate slope that way).

    The integral of that equation between any two values of x tells you the area between the graph and the x-axis, and bounded by those two x values. This saves you having to draw the graph and trying to work out the approximate area, perhaps by counting squares and fractions of squares.

    This is just a start, of course. Calculus can do much more.
