# Integrating factor in Entropy (1/T)

1. Sep 5, 2009

### Substance D

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Show that the statment for Entropy $$dS = \int\frac{\delta Q}{T}$$ is path independent

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I am trying to show this by stating that dS is an exact differential by stating how $$\delta Q$$ is an inexact differential and by multiplying by integrating factor 1/T we now have an exact differntial with is path independent.

I am trying to understand what it is that makes 1/T an integrating factor, or is this a poor way of doing it?

Thanks
