Question about integration.

  1. Sep 6, 2010 #1
    Ok, I have a question.

    I know that you can integrate volocity to get acceloration, but can you take a dirivative or integrate something to get volume or mass, is there any other things where you can do the same?

    Thanks! (I've been looking and I just need to clear my mind).

    Integrating velocity (WRT t), you get displacement (or distance). To get acceleration from velocity, you need to differentiate v WRT t.

    You can integrate density scalar over the defined volume to get mass.
