The required area is
A=area of OAB+area of BCD
$\;\;=\int_0^\pi ydx+\int_\pi^{2\pi}-ydx$
The curve between the limits 0 to $\pi$ is on the positive side of y-axis
The curve between the limits $\pi$ to $2\pi$ is on the negative side of y-axis
Hence $A=\int_0^\pi\sin xdx+\int_\pi^{2\pi}\sin xdx$
$\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;A=[-\cos x]_0^\pi+[-\cos x]_\pi^{2\pi}$
Hence the required area is 4 sq,units.
