What are some good examples of an isolated system? I understand that energy nor matter can be transferred, but I can't really think of any good examples of an isolated system since most are either closed or open.
I think its actually pretty hard to have a completely isolated system, as there will always be some amount of heat or other energy transfer. But I second the bomb calorimeter and the thermos. Another good one might be a human body in an acclimated dry suit...
