Can someone explain what Lavelle was going over in lecture today about how dV or the derivative in V solves for something? And also I don't understand why the main equation we went over today involves taking an antiderivative/integral. Is this because we want to solve for the derivative and find the change in a given system?
Work is the integral of the product of force and displacement. In class, he used that definition of work to derive the formula for work done by a piston. However, you can just use the formula using delta V because that is more applicable to the scope of this class.
