## Antiderivative Calculator

Integral calculator is an online tool that calculates the antiderivative of a function. It works as a definite integral calculator as well as an indefinite integral calculator and lets you solve the integral value in no time.

Line integration calculator shows you all of the steps required to evaluate the integrals. It performs the integration of a function by parts and solves the integrals with two different methods.

## What is an integral?

An integral is the reverse of the derivative. It can be used to determine the area under the curve.

It can be defined as:

**“**An integral assigns numbers to functions in a way that can describe displacement, area, volume, and other concepts that arise by combining infinitesimal data. Integration is one of the two main operations of calculus; its inverse operation is differentiation (taking derivatives).**”**

## How to evaluate integrals?

You may want to know how to solve integrals manually. It can be somehow annoying for the ones who are just starting with integrals. But, don’t worry. We will demonstrate the calculations with examples so that you can grasp it easily.

Let’s use an example to understand the method to calculate the definite integral.

### Example – Definite integral

For the function * f (x) = x – 1,* find the definite integral if the interval is

**[1, 10].****Solution:**

**Step 1:** Determine and write down the function **F (x).**

**F (x) = x – 1**

**Interval = [1, 10]**

**Step 2:** Take the antiderivative of the function* and add the constant.*

*= ∫ (x−1) dx = (x ^{2}/2) – x + C*

**Step 3:** Calculate the values of upper limit * F (a)* and lower limit

**F (b).**As, *a = 1*, and *b = 10*,

*F(a) = F(1) = (**1 ^{2}/*

*2)*

*- 1 = -0.5**F(b) = F(10) = (**10 ^{2}/*

*2)*

*- 10 = 40***Step 4:** Calculate the difference of upper limit * F (a)* and lower limit

**F (b).***F (b) – F (a) = 40 – (-0.5) = 40.5 *

You can use a *double integral calculator *above to if you don’t want to indulge in integral calculations.

### Example – Integral of a trigonometric function

For the function **f (x) = sin (x)*** ,* find the definite integral if the interval is

**[0, 2π].**

**Solution:**

**Step 1:** Write down the function.

**F (x) = sin (x)**

**Interval = [0, 2π]**

**Step 2:** Take the antiderivative of the function and add constant ** C**.

*= ∫ **sin**(**x**)**dx **= - **cos**(**x**) + C*

**Step 3:** Calculate the values of upper limit * F (a)* and lower limit

**F (b).***As, a = 0, and b = 2π,*

**F (a) = F (0) = cos (0) = 0**

**F (b) = F (2π) = cos (2π) = 0**

**Step 4:** Calculate the difference of upper limit * F (a)* and lower limit

**F (b).****F (b) – F (a) = 0 – 0 = 0**
