I took already Calculus and Ordinary differential equations but my fluids mechanics Professor ask us to write to pages about the difference between a partial and a ordinary derivative. The problem is that the only thing I know is that ordinary derivative are the differentiation of a function of one variable, and partial derivative the differentiation of a function of multiple variables about one variable.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This won't fill 2 pages. Somebody could help with some other differences?
