## Important Questions & Answers For Class 12 Maths Chapter 8 Application of Integrals

Q. No.1: Find the area enclosed by the ellipse x2/a2 + y2/b2 =1.

Solution:

Given,  We know that,

Ellipse is symmetrical about both x-axis and y-axis. Area of ellipse = 4 × Area of AOB Substituting the positive value of y in the above expression since OAB lies in the first quadrant. = 2ab × sin-1(1)

= 2ab × π/2

= πab

Hence, the required area is πab sq.units.

Q. No. 2: Find the area of the region bounded by y2 = 9x, x = 2, x = 4 and the x-axis in the first quadrant.

Solution:

We can draw the figure of y2 = 9x; x = 2, x = 4 and the x-axis in the first curve as below. y2 = 9x

y = ±√(9x)

y = ±3√x

We can consider the positive value of y since the required area is in the first quadrant.

The required area is the shaded region enclosed by ABCD. = 2 [(2)3 – (√2)3]

= 2[8 – 2√2]

= 16 – 4√2

Hence, the required area is 16 – 4√2 sq.units.

Q. No. 3: Find the area of the curve y = sin x between 0 and π.

Solution:

Given,

y = sin x Area of OAB = – [cos π – cos 0]

= -(-1 -1)

= 2 sq. units

Q. No. 4: Find the area of the region bounded by the two parabolas y = x2 and y2 = x.

Solution:

Given two parabolas are y = x2 and y2 = x.

The point of intersection of these two parabolas is O (0, 0) and A (1, 1) as shown in the below figure. Now,

y2 = x

y = √x = f(x)

y = x2 = g(x), where, f (x) ≥ g (x) in [0, 1]. = (⅔) – (⅓)

= ⅓

Hence, the required area is ⅓ sq.units.

Q. No. 5: Smaller area enclosed by the circle x2+ y2 = 4 and the line x + y = 2 is

(A) 2 (π – 2)

(B) π – 2

(C) 2π – 1

(D) 2 (π + 2)

Solution:

Option (B) is the correct answer.

Explanation:

Given,

Equation of circle is x2+ y2 = 4……….(i)

x2+ y2 = 22

y = √(22 – x2) …………(ii)

Equation of a lines is x + y = 2 ………(iii)

y = 2 – x

 x 0 2 y 2 0 Therefore, the graph of equation (iii) is the straight line joining the points (0, 2) and (2, 0).

From the graph of a circle (i) and straight-line (iii), it is clear that points of intersections of circle

(i) and the straight line (iii) is A (2, 0) and B (0.2).

Area of OACB, bounded by the circle and the coordinate axes is = [ 1 × √0 + 2 sin-1(1) – 0√4 – 2 × 0]

= 2 sin-1(1)

= 2 × π/2

= π sq. units

Area of triangle OAB, bounded by the straight line and the coordinate axes is = 4 – 2 – 0 + 0

= 2 sq.units

Hence, the required area = Area of OACB – Area of triangle OAB

= (π – 2) sq.units
