Real life Uses for Improper Integrals:
Investigating possible physical employments for Improper Integrals

Introduction and Rationale
Before I started learning about IB physics, calculus seemed only to be an abstract concept within the classroom. Yet as I started to learn more about the physical behaviours of the world around me, the significance of the link between mathematics and physics became much more apparent. This link first came to me when I studied Kinematics (Study of motion) in physics, where I learnt about the proper mathematical differential definitions of velocity and acceleration. Thereafter, the correlation between the worlds of physics and calculus occurred to me repeatedly, emphasising the
