If your device is not in landscape mode many of the equations will run off the side of your device (should be able to scroll to see them) and some of the menu items will be cut off due to the narrow screen width.

Section 6-2 : Area Between Curves

  1. Determine the area below \(f\left( x \right) = 3 + 2x - {x^2}\) and above the x-axis. Solution
  2. Determine the area to the left of \(g\left( y \right) = 3 - {y^2}\) and to the right of \(x = - 1\). Solution

For problems 3 – 11 determine the area of the region bounded by the given set of curves.

  1. \(y = {x^2} + 2\), \(y = \sin \left( x \right)\), \(x = - 1\) and \(x = 2\) Solution
  2. \(\displaystyle y = \frac{8}{x}\), \(y = 2x\) and \(x = 4\) Solution
  3. \(x = 3 + {y^2}\), \(x = 2 - {y^2}\), \(y = 1\) and \(y = - 2\) Solution
  4. \(x = {y^2} - y - 6\) and \(x = 2y + 4\) Solution
  5. \(y = x\sqrt {{x^2} + 1} \), \(y = {{\bf{e}}^{ - \,\,\frac{1}{2}x}}\), \(x = - 3\) and the y-axis. Solution
  6. \(y = 4x + 3\), \(y = 6 - x - 2{x^2}\), \(x = - 4\) and \(x = 2\) Solution
  7. \(\displaystyle y = \frac{1}{{x + 2}}\), \(y = {\left( {x + 2} \right)^2}\), \(\displaystyle x = - \frac{3}{2}\), \(x = 1\) Solution
  8. \(x = {y^2} + 1\), \(x = 5\), \(y = - 3\) and \(y = 3\) Solution
  9. \(x = {{\bf{e}}^{1 + 2y}}\), \(x = {{\bf{e}}^{1 - y}}\), \(y = - 2\) and \(y = 1\) Solution
