For an ideal gas, the thermodynamic state is defined by Pressure, Volume and Temperature. Any other ideal gas at the same Pressure, Volume and Temperature will be thermodynamically equivalent. For a paramagnetic system, magnetic intensity and magnetization as well as pressure, volume and temperature define the thermodynamic state. A thermodynamic system may consist of different components that are in thermal equilibrium with themselves but are not in thermal equilibrium with each other. So a thermodynamic system may not have a single thermodynamic state. AM
