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 is simply one that depends only on the start and endpoint, and not the path. Example internal energy (U), enthalpy (H), entropy (S) etc. Gibbs energy is a state function, hence their change depends on the initial and final state of the system.
