There is a formula which says the change (delta) of volume of a mixture is equal to the partial derivative of delta G with respect to pressure at constant temperature. I don't understand how there can be a derivative and the delta used at the same time on G. I thought that derivatives were used for infinitesimal changes and that delta was used for larger ones.
