Fundamental Theorem of Calculus and Initial Value Problems
This Demonstration helps to visualize the fundamental theorem of calculus. It includes the animation of a particle's motion on the axis and a plot of its height as a function of time, which is the solution to the initial value problem with differential equation and initial condition . You can change the particle's initial position and its continuous velocity function . As the animation runs, Mathematica graphs on the right and the accumulated area that is colored on the left; when the animation stops, the new graph shows a function that solves the corresponding initial value problem.
