# Case study Chapter 8 (Application of Integral)

**Case study 1: Read the following and answer the question.(Case study application of integral 1)**

Nowadays, almost every boat has a triangular sail. By using a triangular sail design it has become possible to travel against the wind using a technique known as tacking. Tacking allows the boat to travel forward with r

triangular sail on the walls and three edges(lines) at the triangular sail are given by the equation x = 0, y = 0 and y + 2x – 4 = 0 respectively.

**(i) Point of intersection of the edges(lines) y + 2x – 4 = 0 and y = 0**

(a) (4, 0) (b) (0, 4)

(c) (2, 0) (d) (0, 2)

**(ii) Length of each vertical strip of the sail is given by**

(a) -2x + 4 (b) y + 4

(c) x – 4 (d) y – 4

**(iii) The point of intersection of the edges(lines) of the sail given by the equation y + 2x – 4 = 0 and x = 0 is**

(a) (2, 0) (b) (4, 0)

(c) (0, 2) (d) (0, 4)

**(iv) Length of each horizontal strip of the sail is given by**

(a) (4 – y) (b) 1/2(4 – y)

(c) 1/2(4 – x) (d) (4 – 2x)

**(v) The area of triangular sail is ( in square units)**

(a) 4 (b) 2

(c) 8 (d) 16

**Solution: (i) Answer (c)**

Given equation, y + 2x – 4 = 0

x = 2

Point of intersection is (2, 0)

**(ii) answer (a)**

We have y + 2x – 4 = 0

y = 4 – 2x

Length of vertical strip is given by

y = 4 – 2x

i.e. -2x + 4

**(iii) Answer (d)**

y + 2x – 4 = 0 —(i)

and x = 0 —(ii)

From equation (i) and (ii), we have

y + 0 – 4 = 0

y = 4

Point of intersection is (0, 4)

**(iv) Answer (b)**

We have

y + 2x – 4 = 0

2x = 4 – y

x = 1/2(4 – y)

**(v) Answer (a)**

we have

Area of triangular sail

sq. units
