Solution: Which of the following is true of a general thermodynamic state function? 1. The change of the value of a state function is independent of the path of a process. 2. The value of a state function does NOT change with a change in temperature of a process. 3. The change in the value of a state function is always negative for a spontaneous reaction. 4. The value of the state function remains constant. 5. The change in the value of the state function is always positive for endothermic processes.

Problem

Which of the following is true of a general thermodynamic state function?

2. The value of a state function does NOT change with a change in temperature of a process.

3. The change in the value of a state function is always negative for a spontaneous reaction.

4. The value of the state function remains constant.

5. The change in the value of the state function is always positive for endothermic processes.
