Lets say I want to integrate sin from 0 to pi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The answer is 2

But how do visualize it in terms of the graph?

am I summing up the area under the graph?

So it's like max value of 1 on the y axis

While the x axis stretches from 0 to 3.14?

If so, then why does doing the calculus in terms of cos (after integrating) give me the same result?

What is the reason behind it? What am I doing essentially?

Thanks!
