Recall that:

$\mathbf{∆}{\mathbf{H}}_{\mathbf{rxn}}\mathbf{=}\mathbf{∆}{\mathbf{H}}_{\mathbf{f}\mathbf{,}\mathbf{products}}\mathbf{-}\mathbf{∆}{\mathbf{H}}_{\mathbf{f}\mathbf{,}\mathbf{reactants}}$

• Enthalpy → can be computed based on initial and final states
• State function → property of a system that does not depend on the path taken
• Work →  depends on the path taken
