Let x = f(y) be a continuous function of y on [c, d] to the right of y-axis as shown below.
Then, the area bounded by the curve x = f(y) and the y-values y = c and y = d to the right of y-axis is given by
What if the curve lies to the left of y-axis between the lines y = c and y = d?
Then, the area bounded by the curve x = f(y) and the y-values y = c and y = d to the left of y-axis is given by
Example 1 :
Find the area of the region bounded by y = 2x + 1, y = 3, y = 5 and y–axis.
Solution :
The line y = 2x + 1 lies to the right of y-axis between the lines y = 3 and y = 5 as shown below.
Solve the equation y = 2x + 1 for x in terms of y.
y = 2x + 1
y - 1 = 2x
⁽ʸ ⁻ ¹⁾⁄₂ = x
The required area :
Example 2 :
Find the area of the region bounded by y = 2x + 4, y = 1, y = 3 and y–axis.
Solution :
The line y = 2x + 4 lies to the left of y-axis between the lines y = 1 and y = 3 as shown below.
Solve the equation y = 2x + 4 for x in terms of y.
y = 2x + 4
y - 4 = 2x
⁽ʸ ⁻ ⁴⁾⁄₂ = x
The required area :
