    Yes, I know that calculus is vital for engineers, but I was wondering exactly when integration was used?
    I am doing M2 atm so I understand that you need it for kinematic questions with changing accleration,
    but for engineers, is it for the same reason: to find acclerations, velocities etc.? Surely there must be a use for more complex things...

    One application would be to find the volume enclosed by a structure of known dimensions.

    edit: Assuming that one or more of the sides are not perfectly straight.
