A state function is any function in which the value is not dependent on the path taken. If a value were dependent on its path, then it is a path function. A common example of path vs state function is like displacement vs distance traveled. You can travel 5 meters East and 5 meters West, your displacement would be zero, but your distance traveled would be 10 meters.
