this is a question from my Calculus class can you explain it for me?
"We know that an indefinite integral leaves us with a + C at the end. Discuss what this is all about and give an example of a real life situation where the + C is important."
We know that integration is the process that is reverse of differentiation. And as differentiation of constant function is zero that's why we use +C in indefinate integral to represent the constant value.
Example is real life is,
Suppose a man velocity is given by v(t) = t m/s and we have to calculate the total distance covered by man given that at t = 0 the distance covered by the man is 10m.
So for this case the distance travelled will be integration of v(t) with respect to t that is s(t) = t^2/2 + C and since at t = 0 s(0) = 10 = C.
So s(t) = t^2/2 +10 .
In this way +C is used in real life.
