Why volume is a state function?

Solution

We’re asked to explain why volume is a state function.


Recall that state functions are not dependent on the path taken to reach a particular state but only on the initial and final states.   


For example, Temperature is a state function since the overall change in the temperature only depends on the initial and final states of the system regardless of how many times it is heated, cooled or modified (path).
