## How do you find the area between two curves that intersect?

To find the area between two curves defined by functions, integrate the difference of the functions. If the graphs of the functions cross, or if the region is complex, use the absolute value of the difference of the functions.

### What does the area between two curves represent?

Finding the area between two curves is an extension of finding the area under the function’s curve. The image below shows how the value of the area between the two curves is equivalent to the difference between the areas under each curve.

**How do you find the area between two polar curves?**

To get the area between the polar curve r=f(θ) and the polar curve r=g(θ), we just subtract the area inside the inner curve from the area inside the outer curve. If f(θ)≥g(θ), this means 12∫baf(θ)2−g(θ)2dθ.

**How do you find the area enclosed by two parabolas?**

First we need to draw the rough sketch of two parabolas to find the point of intersection. By applying the value of y in the equation y2 = 9x/4. Therefore, the two parabolas are intersecting at the point (0, 0) and (4, 3). Therefore the required area = 4 square units.

## What is the first step toward finding the area between two curves?

First, you will take the integrals of both curves. Next, you will solve the integrals like you normally would. Finally, you will take the integral from the curve higher on the graph and subtract the integral from the lower integral.

### What is area bound?

An area bounded by two curves is the area under the smaller curve subtracted from the area under the larger curve. This will get you the difference, or the area between the two curves.

**Is the area between two curves always positive?**

Finally, unlike the area under a curve that we looked at in the previous chapter the area between two curves will always be positive. If we get a negative number or zero we can be sure that we’ve made a mistake somewhere and will need to go back and find it.

**What is the first step towards finding the area between two curves?**

## What is the area of a polar curve?

To understand the area inside of a polar curve r=f(θ), we start with the area of a slice of pie. If the slice has angle θ and radius r, then it is a fraction θ2π of the entire pie. So its area is θ2ππr2=r22θ.

### What is area of parabola?

Now back to our problem: the area A under the parabola: area. A = the integral of Y dX, for X changing from -R to R. A = -R∫RY dX. See this by using vertical slices of the area below the arch.

**What is the area between the parabola y 2 4ax and x2 4ay?**

Prove that the area enclosed between two parabolas y^2 = 4ax and x^2 = 4ay is 16a^23.

**What is the area between two curves?**

The yellow shaded region in the image below is an example of the area between two curves. This area is a 2-dimensional space bound by the curve of the upper function, the curve of the lower function, a left interval endpoint, and a right interval endpoint. Why do we Learn About the Area Between Two Curves?

## How to find the total enclosed area between the curves?

Now, we know that the total area is made up of vary large number of such strips, starting from x = a to x = b. Hence, the total enclosed area A, between the curves is given by adding the area of all such strips between a and b:

### How do you find the point of intersection of two curves?

Case 1: Consider two curves y = f (x) and y = g (x), where f (x) ≥ g (x) in [a, b]. In the given case, the point of intersection of these two curves can be given as x = a and x = b, by obtaining the given values of y from the equation of the two curves.

**How do you find the area of a curve with three points?**

These two functions’ curves intersect at three points: x = -1, x = 0, and x = 1. Therefore, the area enclosed by them is defined by the interval x = [-1, 1]. Once we know the interval we are solving on, we must determine the upper and lower functions for the subinterval (s).
