    What's the difference? I'll major in physics and electrical engineering when I go to college. Which is good for my majors?

    Well if you have a partial derivative, you might have gorren rid of something which was not constant with respect to the other variable.

    It really depends on the equation though.  You just have to be a bit careful.

    It depends on the equation again.

    Can you recommend me a good textbook for that?
