## state functions

$\Delta G^{\circ}= \Delta H^{\circ} - T \Delta S^{\circ}$

$\Delta G^{\circ}= -RT\ln K$

$\Delta G^{\circ}= \sum \Delta G_{f}^{\circ}(products) - \sum \Delta G_{f}^{\circ}(reactants)$

### state functions

out of:
∆G
∆Ssurr
∆Ssys
∆H
q
w

which are state functions?

### Re: state functions

Delta H, Delta S (surrounding and system) and Delta G are all thermodynamic functions, therefore they are state functions that depend on current state.
Q and w are not state properties because they are path dependent.

### Re: state functions

state functions do not depend on the path, you only need to be concerned about the initial and final state
