Calculus and its Applications provides information pertinent to the applications of calculus. This book presents the trapping technique in defining geometrical and physical entities that are usually regarded as limits of sums. Organized into 20 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the notion of average speed that seems to appear first as a qualitative concept. This text then presents the concepts of external and internal parameters to increase the appreciation of parametric functions. Other chapters consider separable differential equations with more detail than usual with their suitability in describing physical laws. This book discusses as well the study of variable quantities whose magnitude is determined by the magnitudes of several other variables. The final chapter deals with a homogeneous differential equation and auxiliary equations consisting imaginary roots. This book is a valuable resource for mathematicians and students. Readers whose interests span a variety of fields will also find this book useful.
