Homework Help: Total differential

  1. Aug 30, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I'm kind of confused with the total differential, because when i integrate it i get a contradiction, so i wonder if anyone could tell me what i'm doing wrong, please see the attachment to see my problem.

    dz=(∂z/∂x)dx+(∂z/∂y)dy

    ∫dz=∫(∂z/∂x)dx+∫(∂z/∂y)dy

    which would give z(x,y)= z(x)+z(y) + constant
