Explain and give an example of state function.


The thermodynamic properties whose values depend only upon the initial and final states of the system are known as state functions. A state function depends only on the start and endpoint, and not the path.

Example of state function

Few examples of state functions are,

  • Internal energy (U)
  • Enthalpy (H)
  • Entropy (S)
  • Gibbs energy
  • Pressure
  • Temperature
  • Mass
  • Volume
