Delta X and U

Postby Malia Shitabata 1F » Thu Jan 30, 2020 12:52 pm

What is the difference between X and U because it seems like they're related

I think the book is just using it as an example of any variable to show that delta means "change of." X is a placeholder for other variables such as U.
On page 244 of the textbook it says the symbol delta X means a difference in the property X.
