WHAT IS THE MEANING OF INTEGRATION?

How about integration? Integration tells us an area, perhaps a volume.
  • For example, an engineer might compute the volume of a cylindrical tank (with spherical end caps) used to store water. How much wine is contained in a cask of wine? Well, if you wish to compute that volume, those curved sides will involve integration.

  • An engineer would use integration to compute a moment of inertia, thus helping to understand the physics of a spinning tire on a car, or a bicycle. In turn, that helps explain why you can ride that bicycle without falling over.

  • What is the average speed you will travel at when you drive into work? Integration could tell you that, although there are simpler ways to do so.
