Chapter 6: Applications of Double Integration
Section 6.1: Area
Use the double integral to calculate the area of the region R, the finite region bounded by the graphs of x=y2 and y=3−2 x.
The region R is shaded in the graph shown in Figure 6.1.2(a). The simplest iteration of the double integral that gives the area of R takes the integrand as 1 and uses the order dx dy:
∫−3/21∫y23−y/21 dx dy = 12548
If the order of integration is taken as dx dy, then the iterated integral is more difficult:
∫01∫−xx1 dy dx+∫19/4∫−x3−2 x1 dy dx = 12548

Figure 6.1.2(a) The region R
The first of these two iterated integrals gives the area of the blue-shaded region in Figure 6.1.2(a); the second, the green.

Iterate in the order dy dx via the template in the Calculus palette
∫01∫−xx1 ⅆy ⅆx+∫19/4∫−x3−2 x1 ⅆy ⅆx = 12548
The task template in Table 6.1.2(a) iterates in the order dx dy. The right-pointing arrow in the left-hand graph indicates that the inner (first) integration is in the x-direction. The right-hand image contains a graph of the volume computed by the integral. Since the height of the region in the graph is the constant 1, the volume and the area are the same number.
