Isolated: does not exchange matter or energy with surroundings
Closed: can exchange energy with surroundings, but not mass

An isolated system, like combustion in a bomb calorimeter, is when nothing changes with the surroundings. A closed system, like a sealed beaker, is when only energy can exchange with the surroundings.

Isolated systems cannot exchange matter or energy. But a closed system can exchange energy.

a closed system has a fixed amt of matter but can exchange energy w the surroundings, while an isolated system cannot exchange matter or energy with the surroundings

An isolated system does not exchange matter or energy with the surroundings, but a closed system exchanges energy and not matter with the surroundings. This relates to the laws of thermodynamics in that the first law states that the internal energy of an isolated system stays constant, and the second law states that the entropy of an isolated system tends to increase.

In an isolated system, no heat can be transferred and the volume remains constant, but in a closed system, heat can be transferred and the volume also remains constant.

A closed system cannot exchange matter with its surroundings but it can exchange energy. An isolated system can transfer neither energy nor matter to its surroundings.
