A. Energy, First Law of Thermodynamics and Enthalpy (Review of Sec. 6.3 and 6.4) Thermodynamics is the scientific study of the interconversion of heat and other forms of energy. State functions are properties that are determined by the state of the system, regardless of how that condition was achieved. D E = E final - E initial P = P final - P initial V = V final - V initial T = T final - T initial energy , pressure, volume, temperature Potential energy of hiker 1 and hiker 2 is the same even though they took different paths.
