In a closed system, the matter within the system is constant, however, energy can be transferred from the system to its surroundings and vice versa. In an isolated system, neither matter nor energy can be transferred between the system and its surroundings.

Closed is like a test tube with a cap on it, so solution can be heated or lose heat.
Isolated is behind thick walls like a bomb calorimeter or thermos so no outside interaction can occur.

how do we determine which one it is, or will it be stated?

OPEN: both energy and matter transferred
CLOSED: energy but not matter transferred
ISOLATED: neither energy nor matter
