4A.1

What's the difference between a closed and an isolated system?

Closed systems cannot exchange matter, but can exchange energy with their surroundings. Isolated systems are completely isolated and both matter and energy are constant.

A closed system can exchange energy with its surroundings, but not matter, while an isolated system cannot exchange either energy nor matter. For example, an example of a closed system is a pan with a lid, on top of a stove. The pan is exchanging heat energy from the fire, but not the amount of matter inside the pan. On the other hand, an isolated system would be like an insulated thermal cup where neither energy nor matter is being exhanged with the environment.

Isolated systems are insulated while closed systems are not. This means that while the amount of matter is constant in both, closed systems can exchange energy with their environment while insulated systems cannot.

closed systems can be impacted by their surroundings while isolated systems cannot.

A closed system can exchange energy with its surroundings, however, an isolated is unable to exchange energy (nor matter) with its surroundings.

A closed system is when energy from the system can be exchanged with the surroundings. Meanwhile an isolated system is when nothing in the system can be exchanged with the surroundings.

Isolated systems cannot exchange energy with their surroundings. Think of a thermos retaining heat, it counts as an isolated system because the energy transfer from within to outside is negligible.

In a closed system, energy can be exchanged with its surroundings. For example, if you put a lid on a pot, matter cannot be exchanged, but energy can still be transferred. In an isolated system, nothing is exchanged with its surroundings. An example of this is a thermos; however, it is not 100% perfect.

A closed system has a fixed amount of matter, but it can only exchange energy with the surroundings.
An isolated system can neither exchange matter nor energy with the surroundings.

In a closed system, only energy (but not matter) can be exchanged. In an isolated system, neither energy nor matter can be exchanged.

open- matter and energy transfer
closed- energy transfer
isolated- no transfer

open system allows the transfer between matter and energy
closed system allows the transfer of energy but not matter
isolated system doesn't allow the transfer of energy or matter
