I'm having trouble understanding the derivative notation. I know that "dE" and dQ" have to do with the derivative, but what exactly does that mean in the context of this problem? For some reason I find it difficult to understand why this derivative notation is used in so many physics questions. How do I know what variables have derivative notation?
