6.1 Antiderivatives

Antiderivatives!!
If we are given a derivative, how do we find the original function

A function F is an antiderivative of f if F'(x) = f(x)
...in other words the derivative of your integral equals the original function


Basic Rules

1. The Antiderivative of a Constant k

2. The Power Rule


3. The Antiderivative of a Multiple of a Function

4. The Sum Rule


5. The Antiderivatice of the Exponential Function

6. The Antiderivative of f(x)= 1/x


You can also find the value of C when given an integral and a point.

Initial Value Problem
Example:



plug in your point


therefore...
