Section 6.1 Area between Curves
Find the Area of the Region
What we want to do is take the integral, which would give us the area under the curve
However, if we were to take the integral of () or () only, you wouldn’t quite get
the area highlighted in green that we want
What to do?
Take the area of () ()
Why? Because the area under the curve of () subtracted from the area under
the curve of () would give us the desired area

What would this give us?

In other words, the area between the curves is the area of the top curve
minus the bottom curve
Example #1
Find the area between = 2 and = 2
Firstly, we want to define the boundaries that we will take the area under
Find the intersection points of the two functions
Set the functions equal to each other to do so
2 = 2
0 = 2 2
0 = ( 2)
= 2, = 0

So we will take the integral from [0, 2]

We know that we can compile the new integral like so because from the graph,
we can clearly see that = 2 is clearly on the top
= 2

= 2(1

= 4

Example #2
Find the area between the curves = 4, = 2, = 1
Define the boundaries
2 = 4
= 2
