For state properties, its value is not dependent on the path taken to obtain state (such as altitude, heat, enthalpy). For example, people can hike different paths and start and end at the same altitude. This shows that altitude is a state function because it only depends on the initial and final states. However, since the groups did different amounts of work, work is a path function.
