Some doubts on state function

  1. Sep 3, 2007 #1
    actually i know some fundamental state function such that temperature, pressure, and volume. But it's because these are the most used. Now my problem is how to know the other state function i.e what are the conditions?

    Shouldn't there be a verb in that sentence?
    What, exactly do you mean by "state function"?

    Just use the fact that differentials of properties is exact.
    Now some more are internal energy potential energy etc etc.
    But follow the basic rule to find it out.
