An example in physics that uses integration is impulse [tex]J=\int_{\Delta t} F dt[/tex].

So, what does this really mean? It means we want to know how Force (F) behaves over an interval (Δt). But we want to be able to see how it behaves at ALL (i think i need to stress that) times, so the way we can present this mathematically is the integral AKA a continuous sum!

This comes from newtonian mechanics, and you find more examples relating calculus and mechanics.
