Work done by a system is not a state function because it is dependent on the pathway that a reaction takes (path used to go from initial to final state); whereas for state functions, the values can be determined by the initial and final values for the reaction. Work is dependent on the pressure and volume change of a system, which are things that take the reaction from its initial to final state.
