Calculate the area under the curve included between the lines x = 0 and x = 1.

Answer :

y = 2√x


squaring both sides we get


y2 = 4x


y2 = 4x is a equation of parabola


In y2 = 4x parabola it is not defined for negative values of x hence the parabola will be to the right of Y-axis passing through (0, 0)


Now for y = 2√x x and y both has to be greater than 0 that is both positive hence both lie in 1st quadrant


Hence y = 2√x will be parabolic curve of y2 = 4x only in 1st quadrant


x = 0 is equation of Y-axis and x = 1 is a line parallel to Y-axis passing through (1, 0)


Plot equations y = 2√x and x = 1



So we have to integrate y = 2√x from 0 to 1


let us find area under parabola


y = 2√x


Integrate from 0 to 1








Hence area bounded = unit2
