This calculus video tutorial provides a basic introduction in finding the area between two curves with respect to y and with respect to x. It explains how to set up the definite integral to calculate the area of the shaded region bounded by the two curves. In order to find the points of intersection, you need to set the two curves equal to each other and solve for x or y. You need to be familiar with some basic integration techniques for this lesson. This video contains plenty of examples and practice problems.
