π₯**AP Calculus AB/BC - ****Position, Velocity, and Acceleration**

When **integrating the acceleration function, you will get the velocity function**. When **integrating the velocity function, you will get the position function.** This concept is essential to understand when learning about the applications of integration. When you have an indefinite integral of a function, the result will be the function that comes before it.Β β©οΈ

In essence, using integrals for PVA (position, velocity, acceleration) problems is just the opposite of derivation. If you're given a velocity function and need to position, just integrate! This is because of the **fundamental theorem of calculus.**
