# Proving that an integral means “potential” in physics terms

It's possible to prove with mathematical terms using a part of the physics knowledge this general assumption? I have several formulas in mind but not a general and big picture for this property of the integrals, and the most important part is that i can't find a rigorous explanation for that.

What integral? What question? –  Ｊ. Ｍ. Dec 1 '11 at 12:52
what are your doubts? I'm considering a generic integral, an infinite sum of infinitesimals. –  Micro Dec 1 '11 at 12:55
