Unformatted text preview: surroundings. Open Systems heat, work, and matter may cross the boundary between the system and its surroundings. Isolated Systems matter and energy does not cross the boundary between the system and its surroundings. Adiabatic Systems heat does not cross the boundary between the system and its surroundings. Diathermic Systems - heat may cross boundary between the system and its surroundings. 4) ( 6 points ) What are state functions? Give four properties of a system that are state functions. The value of a state function depends only on the current state of the system and it is independent of how that state has been processed. In other words it is a function of the properties that determine the current state of the system. Internal energy, enthalpy, entropy, pressure, temperature, volume, heat capacity are some example for state functions....
