### Open Systems

Which equations can be applied to open systems?

### Re: Open Systems

Since open systems are permeable to energy and matter, im pretty sure all thermodynamic equations can be applied

I agree. Open systems are able to exchange matter and energy with its surroundings. I think the important thing is looking at whether the pressure is constant or not or if the volume is constant or not in deciding what equations to use.

How does one determine whether a system is open and what does that say about pressure and volume?

### Re: Open Systems

I think a question will explicitly tell you if the system is open

Any equations, depending on whether or not the work/effect on the system is adiabetic/isothermal/isochoric, etc...

### Re: Open Systems

I think most equations can. Most of the time though an open system is to be considered at constant pressure though.

You can use almost any equation with an open system you just have to be cognoscente of how the open system affects your variables.

I believe you are able to use most equations.

### Re: Open Systems

since open systems allow for the exchange of matter and energy, I think that any thermodynamic equation can be used so long as you pay attention to if it has constant pressure and volume

I believe almost all equations work, but you would have to be aware of how an open system affects the variables.

what is the difference between open and closed systems?

which equations work on closed systems?
