Converting derivative into integral

  1. Mar 28, 2012 #1

    I need to ask a very basic question and am very weak at calculus. I have an equation d(B)/dt=Q/K. Where K is a constant and Q is a function of time. B is the variable, which when differentiated w.r.t. time gives the Q. I want to convert this equation into integral form. Can anyone help me out on this? I will really really appreciate any help! Thanks!

    Hey zealous131 and welcome to the forums.

    Does Q only involve time (t) or does it also involve B? If the answer is no then JJacquelin has provided a very good outline of what to do. If not, then you will need to state how B is involved in with Q. If you don't understand what I'm saying and you've only been told that Q is a function of t (i.e. Q(t)) then don't worry about my advice (but keep it in mind later on if you have to solve things like this).

    Thanks a lot JJacquelin for providing me the solution. I really apreciate it! Thanks Chiro for your valuable comment, Q is only a function of time and doesnt depend on B so that makes ife easier. I will definitely keep the point you've mantioned. Thanks!
