We will use a similar idea in Chapter 5 to find areas of regions of the type shown in Figure 3. We will approximate the desired area A by areas of rectangles (as in Figure 4), let the width of the rectangles decrease, and then calculate A as the limit of these sums of areas of rectangles. y y y (1, 1) y (1, 1) (1, 1) (1, 1) y=≈ A 0 FIGURE 3 1 x 0 1 4 1 2 3 4 1 x 0 1 x 0 1 n 1 x FIGURE 4 The area problem is the central problem in the branch of calculus called integral calculus. The techniques that we will develop in Chapter 5 for finding areas will also enable us to compute the volume of a solid, the length of a curve, the force of water against a dam, the mass and center of gravity of a rod, and the work done in pumping water out of a tank.
