# Definite-integral meaning

An integral that is calculated between two specified limits, usually expressed in the form baƒ(x)dx. The result of performing the integral is a number that represents the area under the curve of ƒ(x) between the limits and the x -axis if f(x) is greater than or equal to zero between the limits.
noun
The result of an integration performed on a fixed interval.
noun
An integral in which the range of integration is specified: its value equals the area on a graph bounded by a curve, the x-axis, and two given ordinates.
noun
The difference between the values of an indefinite integral evaluated at each of two limit points, usually expressed in the form b/aƒ(x)dx. The result of performing the integral is a number that represents the area bounded by the curve of ƒ(x) between the limits and the x -axis if f(x) is greater than or equal to zero between the limits.
The result of an integration performed on a fixed interval.
