# Difference between Riemann sums and Riemann integrals

I have a question that says "Calculate the following Riemann integrals". I know about Riemann sums. Is there any difference between Riemann sums and Riemann integrals?

The Riemann integral is a limit of Riemann sums. – Qiaochu Yuan Dec 7 '12 at 23:01
so would I just use the same method as I would with a normal Riemann sum question? – Justin Dec 7 '12 at 23:03
thanks by the way – Justin Dec 7 '12 at 23:05
