CBSE Class 12 Mathematics Revision Notes Chapter 7 Integrals

  • Integration is the inverse process of differentiation. In the differential calculus, we are given a function and we have to find the derivative or differential of this function, but in the integral calculus, we are to find a function whose differential is given. Thus, integration is a process which is the inverse of differentiation. Let. Then we write. These integrals are called indefinite integrals or general integrals, C is called constant of integration. All these integrals differ by a constant.
  • From the geometric point of view, an indefinite integral is collection of family of curves, each of which is obtained by translating one of the curves parallel to itself upwards or downwards along the y-axis.
  • Some properties of indefinite integrals are as follows:

  • Some standard integrals:

(i)       Particularly, 

  • Integration by Partial Fraction: A rational fraction is the ratio of the form  where P(x) and Q(x) are polynomials in x and Q(x)  0. If the degree of the polynomial P(x) is greater than the degree of the polynomial Q(x), then we may divide P(x) by Q(x) so that  where T(x) is a polynomial in x and degree of P1(x) is less than Q(x). T(x) is a polynomial can be easily integrated.

can be integrated by expressing  as the sum of partial fractions of the following types:
(e)  where  cannot be factorize further into linear fraction.

  • Integration by Substitution: In this method we change the variable to some other variable. When the integrand involves some trigonometric functions, we shall be using some well-known identities to find the integrals. Using substitution technique, we obtain the following standard integrals:


  • Integrals of Some Special Functions:

(a)                     (b) 
(c)                                (d) 
(e)                (f)  

  • Integration by Parts: For the given function f(x) and g(x),

We must take proper care to choose the first function and second function clearly. We must choose that function as the second function whose integral is well-known to us.

  • Some Special Type of Integrals:


  • Integrals of the types  or 

(a) These type of integrals are transformed into standard form by expressing

(b) Integrals of the types  or  are transformed into standard form by expressing 
where A abd B are determined by comparing coefficients on both sides.

  • We have already defined  as the area of the region bounded by the curve  the x-axis and the ordinates x = a and x = b. Let x be a given point in [a, b], then  represents the area function A(x).
  • First Fundamental Theorem of Integral Calculus: Let the area function be defined by  for all  where the function f is assumed to be continuous on [a, b], then  for all .
  • Secind Fundamental Theorem of Integral Calculus: Let f be a continuous function of x defined on the closed interval ]a, b] and let F be another function such that  for all x in the domain of f, then 

This is called the definite integral of f over the range [a, b] were a and b are called the limits of integration,  being the lower limit and  the upper limit.
