Unit2 Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this unit, the student will be able to: - Find the area between two curves. - Find the volumes of solids using ideas from geometry. - Find the volumes of solids of revolution using disks and washers. - Find the volumes of solids of revolution using shells. - Write and interpret a parameterization for a curve. - Find the length of a curve. - Find the surface area of a solid of revolution. - Compute the average value of a function. - Use integrals to compute the displacement and the total distance traveled. - Use integrals to compute moments and centers of mass. - Use integrals to compute work.

2.1 The Area between Curves   Suppose you want to find the area between two concentric circles.  How would you do this?  Logic dictates that you subtract the area of the smaller circle from that of the larger circle.  As this subunit will demonstrate, this method also works when you are trying to determine the area between curves.

2.2 Volumes of Solids   We often take basic geometric formulas for granted.  (Have you ever asked yourself why the volume of a right cylinder is V=πhr2?)  In this subunit, we will explore how some of these formulas were developed.  The key lies in viewing solids as functions that revolve around certain lines.  Consider, for example, a constant, horizontal line, and then imagine that line revolving around the x-axis (or any parallel line).  The resulting shape is a right cylinder.  We can find the volume of this figure by looking at infinitesimally thin “slices” and adding them all together.  This concept enables us to calculate the volume of some extremely complex figures.  In this subunit, we will learn how to do this in general; in the next, we will now take a look at two conventional methods for doing so when the figure has rotational symmetry.

2.3 Volume of Solids of Revolution   When we are presented with a solid that was produced by rotating a curve around an axis, there are two sensible ways to take that solid apart: slice it thinly perpendicularly to the axis, into disks (or washers, if the solid had a hole in the middle), or peel layers from around the outside like the paper wrapper of a crayon.  The latter method is known as the shell method and produces thin cylinders.  In both cases, we find the area of the thin segments and add them up to find the volume; as usual, when we have infinitely many pieces, this “addition” is really integration.

2.4 Lengths of Curves   In this subunit, we will make use of another concept that you have known and understood for quite some time: the distance formula.  If you want to estimate the length of a curve on a certain interval, you can simply calculate the distance between the initial point and terminal point using the traditional formula.  If you want to increase the accuracy of this measurement, you can identify a third point in the middle and calculate the sum of the two resulting distances.  As we add more points to the formula, our accuracy increases: the exact length of the curve will be the sum (i.e. the integral) of the infinitesimally small distances.

2.5 Surface Areas of Solids   In this subunit, we will combine what we learned earlier in this unit.  Though you might expect that calculating the surface area of a solid will be as easy as finding its volume, it actually requires a number of additional steps.  You will need to find the curve-length for each of the “slices” we identified earlier and then add them together.

2.6 Average Value of Functions   Note: You probably learned about averages (or mean values) quite some time ago.  When you have a finite number of numerical values, you add them together and divide by the number of values you have added.  There is nothing preventing us from seeking the average of an infinite number of values (i.e. a function over a given interval).  In fact, the formula is intuitive: we add the numbers using an integral and divide by the range.

2.7 Physical Applications   We will now apply what we have learned about integration to various aspects of science.  You may know that in physics, we calculate “work” by multiplying the force of the work by the distance over which it is exerted.  You may also know that density is related to mass and volume.  But we now know that distance and volume are very much related to integration.  In this subunit, we will explore these and other connections.
