Definite integrals in engineering

A collection of resources to provide ideas for setting definite integrals in the context of engineering, together with materials to support teaching of these topics.

'Gas Compression and Expansion' looks at calculating the energy used when the volume of a gas changes. An interactive file graphs the motion of a piston in a cylinder. The mathematics is focussed on definite integrals.

There are two supporting resources. 'Thinking Questions' is a resource from Susan Wall that includes material on definite integrals. 'Risps for A2 Level Core: Integration 2' gives an area bounded by two functions and poses the question as to what functions bound the area?
