## Integration

Integration can be used to find areas, volumes, central points and many useful things. But it is often used to find the area underneath the graph of a function like this:

The integral of many functions are well known, and there are useful rules to work out the integral of more complicated functions, many of which are shown here.

## Examples

### Example: what is the integral of sin(x) ?

From the table above it is listed as being −cos(x) + C
It is written as:
sin(x) dx = −cos(x) + C

### Example: What is ∫x3 dx ?

The question is asking "what is the integral of x?"
We can use the Power Rule, where n=3:
xn dx = xn+1/(n+1) + C
xdx = x4/4 + C

### Example: What is ∫√x dx ?

√x is also x0.5
We can use the Power Rule, where n=½:
xn dx = xn+1/(n+1) + C
x0.5 dx = x1.5/1.5 + C

### Example: What is ∫6x2 dx ?

We can move the 6 outside the integral:
6x2 dx = 6x2 dx
And now use the Power Rule on x2:
= 6 x3/3 + C
Simplify:
= 2x3 + C

### Example: What is ∫cos x + x dx ?

Use the Sum Rule:
cos x + x dx = cos x dx + x dx
Work out the integral of each (using table above):
= sin x + x2/2 + C

### Example: What is ∫ew − 3 dw ?

Use the Difference Rule:
ew − 3 dw =ew dw − 3 dw
Then work out the integral of each (using table above):
= ew − 3w + C

### Example: What is ∫8z + 4z3 − 6z2 dz ?

Use the Sum and Difference Rule:
8z + 4z3 − 6z2 dz =8z dz + 4z3 dz − 6z2 dz
Constant Multiplication:
= 8z dz + 4z3 dz − 6z2 dz
Power Rule:
= 8z2/2 + 4z4/4 − 6z3/3 + C
Simplify:
= 4z2 + z4 − 2z3 + C
