Application of Integrals
 We can use integrals to find the area bounded by a curve and a line and area bounded by two curves.
 The area bounded by simple curves and the axes can be calculated using a vertical strip and using a horizontal strip.
 While using a vertical strip, the area is enclosed between the curve y = f(x), lines x = a, x = b and x  axis. The formula of area is given by the definite integral of the function f(x), w.r.t x, from the closed interval ‘a’ to ‘b’.
 While using a horizontal strip, the area is enclosed between the curve x = g(y), lines y = a, y = b and y  axis. The formula of area is given by the definite integral of the function g(y), w.r.t y, from the closed interval ‘c’ to ‘d’.
 The area between two curves is given by the definite integral of the difference of two functions, f(x) and g(x), w.r.t. x, from the closed interval ‘a’ to ‘b’ and here we take the positive or modulus of definite integral.
