A state function is a property whose value does not depend on the path taken to reach a specific value. For the sake of this class, pressure, density, temperature, volume, enthalpy, internal energy, Gibb's free energy, and entropy are state functions.
A state function is a function which does not depend upon the path taken to reach a particular final point. Observations of the behavior are valid by simply looking at the final and initial point. An example of a state property Entropy
A state function is something where the path doesn't matter, only the initial and final state. The reason it is so important is that since the path doesn't matter, you can subtract, add, multiply, and divid state functions as necessary.
