Re: Questionable interpretation of physics

At 09:48 04 08 2004 , the following was received:
The point is that dS is an exact differential, but TdS is not:

Given any pair of well defined (initial and final) system states, the
integral of dS over any path (and with any valid constraints) connecting
those states results in the same numerical value. Not so for the integral
of TdS - its integral will be path (and constraint) dependent.

Bob, can you amplify this a bit? Maybe give an example?
