The main objective of this paper is to establish explicit bounds on certain integral inequalities on time scales, which can be used as tools in the study of certain classes of integral equations on time scales. Some applications of our results are also given.
Recently, many authors have studied various aspects of dynamic inequalities on time scales using various techniques [1–4]. In this paper, we obtain explicit bounds on certain integral inequalities on time scales. In the present paper we offer some fundamental dynamic integral inequalities on time scales which can be used as tools for handling the qualitative behavior of solutions of certain dynamic equations on time scales. Excellent information about introduction to time scales can be found in [5, 6]. In what follows, denotes the set of real numbers, the set of integers, and denotes arbitrary time scales. Now following [3, 4] we give some basic definitions about calculus on time scales in two variables.

Our main results are given in the following theorems.
Theorem 3. Let , , , , . If for , then for , where for and defined by (5).
Proof. Define a function by then from (8), , and using this in (11) we get where is defined by (10). Clearly is nonnegative, rd-continuous and nondecreasing in , for nondecreasing. First we assume that for . From (12), we have Now as an application of Lemma 1 we have The desired inequality (9) follows from (14) and the fact that . If , we carry out the above procedure with instead of , where is an arbitrary small constants, and then subsequently pass to the limit as to obtain (9). The following theorem deals with two independent versions of inequalities established in Theorem 3.
Theorem 4. Let , , , , , and be a nonnegative constants. If for , then where for .

Here nondecreasing for , then from (30) we have Now as an application of inequality in Theorem 3 to (31) we get The required inequality in (27) follows from (32) and using the fact that .
In this section, we give application of inequality in Theorem 4 to study certain properties of solution of nonlinear partial integrodifferential equation on time scales, with the initial boundary condition where , , and .
Proof. Let and be two solutions of (33)-(34) on , then we have From (39) and (40), we have As an application of inequality in Theorem 4 with yields , therefore ; that is, there is at most one solution of (33)-(34) on .
