Integration as the limit of a sum

Written by :- Thokchom Sarojkumar Sinha

Find the integral by the method of summation the values of :-

b b
(a) âˆ« e-x dx (b) âˆ« ekx dx
a a

b n-1
Solution :- âˆ« e-x dx = Lt h âˆ‘ e-(a + rh) , where nh = b - a
a hâ†’0 r = 0

= Lt h [ e-a + e-(a+h) + e-(a+2h) + ........+ e-{a+(n-1)h}]
hâ†’0

...
