    The Technical Calculus Question Ever

    I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on a calculus topic and its applications in the real world. Just wondering, how would being able to find the area between two curves be applied in real life? I know how to go through the motions, but I was wondering what an example of a real world application would be.

    Thanks

    Some links (Some interesting stuff I found):

    Real World Mathematics

    Why study calculus? a brief history of math

    How will calculus be applied in my career (geology)? - Yahoo! Answers

    Math Forum - Ask Dr. Math

    The last link seems to provide the best information.

    And a little background in my own life. I find that calculus comes in very handy in a computer science career. Many a time I apply calculus to algorithms for programs that write. You use more calculus than you know. Also, there is a lot of applicable calculus in an economic career too.

    If you want some more answers try google searching.
