if a beaker has a reaction taking place the system is the reaction but is the surroundings the beaker or the atmosphere? also if the beaker was immersed in a water bath the system will still be the reaction but what will the surroundings be? Is it the water bath or the beaker?
The surroundings are everything else in the universe except for the system. So with you interpretation the system as just being the reaction, then the surroundings are equal to the entire universe minus that reaction system.
