## FAQs on Finding Area of the Region bounded by a Curve and a Line Video Lecture - Mathematics (Maths) Class 12 - JEE

 1. How do you find the area of a region bounded by a curve and a line? Ans. To find the area of a region bounded by a curve and a line, you can use the definite integral. First, determine the points of intersection between the curve and the line. Then, integrate the difference between the curve and the line with respect to x or y, depending on the orientation of the region. The resulting integral will give you the area of the bounded region.
 2. Can the region bounded by a curve and a line have a negative area? Ans. No, the region bounded by a curve and a line cannot have a negative area. The area of a region is always a positive value or zero. If the integral of the difference between the curve and the line results in a negative value, it means that you have chosen the wrong orientation for the integral. To obtain the correct area, you need to switch the order of the limits of integration or adjust the orientation of the integral.
 3. What should I do if the curve intersects the line multiple times within the region? Ans. If the curve intersects the line multiple times within the region, you need to find all the points of intersection and determine the intervals where the curve lies above or below the line. Then, you can split the integral into multiple integrals corresponding to the different intervals. Calculate the area for each interval separately by integrating the difference between the curve and the line within that interval.
 4. Is it necessary for the curve and the line to be continuous to find the area of the bounded region? Ans. Yes, it is necessary for both the curve and the line to be continuous within the region in order to find its area. If either the curve or the line has discontinuities within the region, the approach of using definite integrals to find the area may not be applicable. In such cases, you would need to employ alternative methods or divide the region into smaller subregions where the curve and the line are continuous.
 5. Can I use the formula for the area of a triangle to find the area of a region bounded by a straight line and a curve? Ans. No, you cannot use the formula for the area of a triangle to find the area of a region bounded by a straight line and a curve. The formula for the area of a triangle is specifically applicable when the region is triangular in shape. When dealing with a bounded region between a curve and a line, you need to use integration techniques to calculate the area accurately.
