Mathematical integration without calculus


I show how to convert an area measurement problem into a mass measurement problem that is easier to solve.  In general, this idea of converting measurement problems into different spaces is very powerful, and may prove useful in the future.

That was pretty cool,I've never been much of a math guy but that seemed quite straight forward.Thanks for the quick lesson.

Might something like a hole punch produce more consistent sized pieces for figuring out the variation of paper mass per area? (using your new scale)

This is assuming very even density of the paper though.

This is how chromatography integration was done 50 years ago. I can send you papers if you are interested
