A closed system by definition goes cannot exchange matter with its surroundings. If the car is the system and the environment is the surrounding, then a car cannot be a closed system because it released exhaust (which is matter) into the environment.
Could I ask whether anyone could give an example of a closed system? Thank you!
Hi, an example of a closed system is a closed beaker. matter can't enter or leave the system, but the beaker isn't insulated to heat can still be exchanged. Hope this helps!

to elaborate further, an example of an open system is an open pot with boiling water. The system becomes closed when you put a lid over the top of the boiling water.
