In thermodynamics, state variables, state parameters or thermodynamic variables describe the momentary condition of a system. Regardless of the path by which a system goes from one state to another — i.e., the sequence of intermediate states — the total change in any state variable will be the same. This means that the incremental changes in such variables are exact differentials. Below are some examples of state variables:
