Hi there I have read that the area of a peak can be approximated by summing the recorded peak intensities. I cant see how this works?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If you add all the peak intensities together is not just the magnitude of their sum and not the area of the surface the peak overlays?

Someone told me that integration is just a summation of the peak intensities but is it not a summation of the peak areas at an really small interval?

Please help
