Definite integral is generally considered to be a tough topic by students. It must be studied after one is thorough with the concepts of indefinite integrals. The topic is flooded with formulae related to change of limits etc. and hence demands consistent practice. It is an important component of the IIT JEE Mathematics syllabus and so students cannot dare to skip this topic. It not only requires learning of all important formulae but also requires a good speed with thorough knowledge of integration.
Many students grasp integration but make silly errors when completing the two part calculation. Simple peer assessment could help students to think about setting each step of their work minimizing these small but significant slips. This work could be made more engaging by inviting students to mix and match integration problems with graphical representations. Broadly speaking, this section also forms the root of all scientific organizations and studies.

These heads have been discussed in detail in the coming sections. Here we shall discuss them in brief:
A quantity of the form
is called the definite integral of f(x) between the limits ‘a’ and ‘b’, where d/dx (F(x)) = f(x).
Indefinite integral lays down the foundation for definite integral. Both the concepts are synonymous and interrelated. As the name suggests, while indefinite integral refers to the evaluation of indefinite area, in definite integration
the area is to be calculated within specific limits. The figure given below illustrates clearly the difference between definite and indefinite integration:
The value of the integral is unaffected by the variable of integration as long as the limits of integration remain the same.
?
If the limits of integration are interchanged, the value of integration remains same but the sign changes.
If the value of the integral is zero, then the equation f(x) = 0 has at least one root in (a, b) provided f is continuous in (a, b).
The converse of the above result is not true.
where c is a point lying inside or outside the interval [a, b], provided the function ‘f’ is piecewise continuous in (a, b).
where ‘a’ is the period of the function i.e. f(a + x) = f(x).
where f(x) is periodic with period ‘a’.
where K = π/2, if both m and n are even
= 1 otherwise
If g is continuous on [a, b] and f_{1} (x) and f_{2} (x) are differentiable functions whose values lie in [a, b], then d/dx ∫ f_{2}(x) f_{1}(x) g(t) dt = g (f_{2}(x)) f_{2}'(x) – g (f_{1}(x)) f_{1}'(x)
Express the given series in the form ∑ 1/n f (r/n)
Then the limit is its sum when n→∞, i.e. lim n→∞ h ∑1/n f(r/n)
Replace r/n by x and 1/n by dx and lim n→∞ ∑ by the sign of ∫.
The lower and the upper limit of integration are the limiting values of r/n for the first and the last term of r respectively.
The definite integral can be interpreted to represent the area under the graph. This follows from the definition itself that the definite integral is a sum of the product of the lengths of intervals and the "height" of the function being integrated in that interval including the formula for the area of the rectangle. The figure given below clearly illustrates that as we find the value of the definite integral a to b, we are actually finding the area of the shaded portion.
1-1/2 + 1/3 – 1/4 + 1/5 – ….. ∞ = ln 2
1/1^{2 }+ 1/2^{2} + 1/3^{2} + 1/4^{2} + …. ∞ = π^{2}/6
1/1^{2} - 1/2^{2} + 1/3^{2} - 1/4^{2} + …. ∞ = π^{2}/12
1/1^{2} + 1/3^{2} + 1/5^{2} + 1/7^{2} + …. ∞ = π^{2}/8
1/2^{2} + 1/4^{2} + 1/6^{2} + 1/8^{2} + …. ∞ = π^{2}/24
Given that F(x) = ∫ f(t) dt, where integral runs from 0 to x.
By Leibnitz rule, we have
F’(x) = f(x)
But F(x^{2}) = x^{2} (1+x) = x^{2} + x^{3}
Hence, this gives F(x) = x + x^{3/2}
So, F’(x) = 1+ 3/2 x^{1/2}
Hence, f(x) = F’(x) = 1+ 3/2 x^{1/2}
Hence, f(4) = 1+ 3/2 . (4)^{1/2}
This gives f(4) = 1+ 3/2 . 2 = 4
Hence, option (3) is correct.
________________________________________________________________________________
F(x) = ∫√2-t^{2 }dt, where the integral runs from 1 to x
Hence, f’(x) = √2-x^{2}
Another condition that is given in the question is that x^{2} – f’(x) = 0
Therefore, x^{2 }= √2-x^{2}
Hence, x^{4 }= 2-x^{2}
So, x^{4 }+ x^{2} – 2 = 0
This gives the value of x as ±1.
