Thus using integration area bounded by curves is developed. We will see the method of finding area by using integration in this chapter.

**Integral Calculus – II**

**Introduction**

History of integration begins over 2500 years ago. The first Greek
Mathematician Antiphon (around 430 BC(BCE)) introduced the “method of
exhaustion” to find areas of simple polygons and more complicated curves.
(method of exhaustion means dividing the given area into infinite number of
triangles).Though Antiphon invented the method of exhaustion to find area
bounded by complicated curves, the mathematician Eudoxus did the logical
development in this method of exhaustion. Later Euclid used this method to
calculate the area of circle.

Using the same method of exhaustion Archimedes (287 BC(BCE)-217
BC(BCE)) find the area bounded by parabola. Thus using integration area bounded
by curves is developed. We will see the method of finding area by using
integration in this chapter.
