You got the first formula wrong, it is dS= dQ /T
This confuses me, surely as the heat added increases ( dQ), then the temperature will also increase, so it should be (dT)

Unless T is a different constant for each example?

In the first few seconds of this video

it is said that "if the temperature is changing while we add the heat, which is normally the case, then we'l have to do some calculus"

khanacademy is usually a pretty reliable source, so what did he mean by this if the formula is actually dS= dQ /T
