Area Between Curves
• If f and g are continuous with f(x) &gt; g(x)
through [a,b], then the area between the
curves y = f(x) and y = g(x) from a to b is the

Area of an Enclosed Region
When a region is enclosed by intersecting curves, the intersection points give the
limits of integration.
Find the area of the region enclosed by the parabola y = 2 – x2 and the line y = -x.
Solution: graph the curves to determine the x-values of the intersections and if the
parabola or the line is on top.

Boundaries with Changing Functions
• If a boundary of a region is defined by more than one function, we can
partition the region into subregions that correspond to the function
changes.
• Find the area of the region R in the first quadrant bounded by y = (x)1/2
and below by the x-axis AND the line y = x -2

Drill: Find the x and y coordinates of all points where
the graphs of the given functions intersect
• y = x2 – 4x and x + 6
• y = ex and y = x + 1
• y = x2 – πx and y = sin x
• (-1, 5) and (6, 12)
• (0,1)
• (0,0)and (3.14, 0)
Integrating with Respect to y
• Sometimes the boundaries of a region are
more easily described by functions of y than
by functions of x. We can use approximating
rectangles that are horizontal rather than
vertical and the resulting basic formula has y
in place of x.
Integrating with Respect to y
• Find the area of the region R in the first
quadrant bounded by y = (x)1/2 and below by
the x-axis AND the line y = x -2 by integrating
with respect to x.
• y = x – 2 becomes y + 2 = x and y = (x)1/2
becomes y2 = x, y &gt; 0

y = x3 and
• It makes more sense to integrate with respect to y because
you will not have to split the region.
• The lower limit is when the y – value = -1
• The upper limit needs
to be found in the calc.

Using Geometry
• Another way to complete find the area of the region R in the
first quadrant bounded by y = (x)1/2 and below by the x-axis AND
the line y = x -2 by integrating with respect to x.
• You can find the area under y = x to the x-axis from 0 to 4 and
then subtract the area of the triangle formed by the line y = x -2
and the x-axis. 4
