Introduction:

State functions are functions that depend only on the current equilibrium state of a system, not on the method it achieved that state.

Explanation of Solution

State function is a property of a system which depends only on the current equilibrium state of the system. It does not depend on the pathway the system took to acquire that state.

Internal energy, Enthalpy, Entropy are state functions because they are not dependent of the path but dependent on the current equilibrium state. Equilibrium state depends on temperature, pressure and concentration of the substances...
