Borek: Can you give me specific process that involves calculus?

Relatively simple one: finding limiting current on spherical microelectrode during electrolysis.

Radiatiove decay, in order to know how much time it takes for a contaminated area to be safe.

Chemical kinetics, used to predict a reaction's speed or to determine the mechanism of a reaction (especially in organic chemistry).

Quantum mechanics, in which the use of calculus and differential equations (which is a tool completely based on calculus, anyway) determines the behavior of atoms and molecules.

Many branches of physical chemistry use calculus as well.
