Integration is often introduced as the reverse process to differentiation, and has wide applications, for example in finding areas under curves and volumes of solids. This section explains what is meant by integration and provides many standard integration techniques.

Integration leading to log functions

The derivative of x is 1/x. As a consequence, if we reverse the process, the integral of 1/x is ln x + c. In this unit we generalise this result and see how a wide variety of integrals result in logarithm functions. Video tutorial 8 mins.
