Definite Integral on Zero Interval
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Let $f$ be a real function which is defined on the closed interval $\Bbb I := \closedint a b$, where $a < b$.
- $\ds \forall c \in \Bbb I: \int_c^c \map f t \rd t = 0$
Follows directly from the definition of definite integral.
There is only one finite subdivision of $\closedint c c$ and that is $\set c$.
Both the lower sum and upper sum of $\map f x$ on $\closedint c c$ belonging to the finite subdivision $\set c$ are equal to zero.
Hence the result.
