Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2better yet, let me convince you what is the physical representation of the integral from x=a to x=b ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i don't know much about integrals but i know they represent sum of anything so how could we sum up zero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that is one convincing argument^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There is nothing like integral of zero.You should mention with respect to which you are integrating it.If it is the integration of 0 with respect to ,say some dt,then its value is a constant.in the case of integral of zero with anything gives us a constant.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the integral of zero is asking about the area under the curve f(x)=0 what is the area under the line y=0 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well your explanation is quite valid :) As I side note, I always loved the symbol of the integral as well ;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@honey26 your explanation is not right, you are describing the integral of 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the integral of zero has a meaning: the area under the curve of y=0, or the sum of all the y values in some interval as @erica.d said, which is 0+0+0+0+0....=0 so there are two ways to see that the answer is zero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2sorry, what I said is only for definite integrals, I think I see your point now @honey26

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yah,it is true that integral of zero means area under the line y=0 but indefinite integral of 1 with respect to dt gives us t but not a constant,right.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1does indefinite integral represent sum @TuringTest i guess No :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes it does represent a sum actually the symbol you love so much \[\int\]is in fact a medieval S that stands for "summa"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0indefinite integral is also a sum but it has no limits like definite integral.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2...and that is why the indefinite integral of 0 can be a constant, because \[\int0dx\]asks "what function is 0 the derivative of?" the answer is any constant, (or in multivarible terms, any variable that does not depend on x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if you are in 9th grade @erica.d you are way ahead of where I was back then. I was busy failing algebra, I had to go to summer school ;)
